For excitement join the marines- For community and good companionship join the WI
Is the WI all Jam and Jerusalem?
Jam? Yes, we do celebrate home skills and have a marmalade competition and we do sell jams, pickles cakes and pies when the opportunity arises at village fundraising events.
Jerusalem? You are more likely to hear a talk from one of our speakers on travels in Israel than hear us singing Jerusalem.
So what else do we do? Monthly meetings with a speaker, lunches, walks, days out, learning new skills, participating in Warwickshire WI Federation and fundraising.
Who are we? We are a thriving WI and usually have 35 or more members at each meeting. We have members from all walks of life, and from their 40s to their 80s, but all young at heart. We are keen to attract new members and have recently welcomed more younger members. We genuinely enjoy each other's company; even washing up the coffee cups turns into a time to chat to friends. As neighbours and part of a small community, with the inevitable lack of facilities like transport to hospital or local shops, we try to help each other out when the going gets tough.
Why not come along and find out more? Guests are welcome at our monthly meetings where you can find out more. See the programme and contacts pages for more details.
