Programme for 2014

Share |

We meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month between 7.30pm and 9.30pm and our programme involves a variety of talks, demonstrations and activities.

The WI is a subscription organisation. An annual membership fee applies (£34.70 for 2014) plus a small monthly contribution at meetings of £1.50 for members / £3 for visitors. (What a bargain - and you even get a raffle ticket and a chance to win a quality prize!)

If you would like to have a chat before coming along to one of our meetings, please get in touch.
