Our members enjoy walking,wining and dining,trips to the theatre and places of interest. We are involved in craft and gardening projects.
Most of all we have a large circle of friends
Bramley WI was formed in 1919 and was originally an afternoon Institute. It folded for a few months in 1990 due to lack of officers but reformed as an evening Institute since so many members worked and now has nearly as many on the Committee as it has members. Bramley WI is fun loving and welcomes visitors be they young or old. The programme is varied with speakers, demonstrations and social activities. There is an active drama group who enjoy entertaining not only sister Institutes at their Christmas and Birthday meetings but to some of the village’s elderly and infirm. Bramley WI also undertakes village improvements for villagers, for example the Millennium Garden Project, pictured below. Most years enter the New Forest Show which results in several gold and silver stars. We also have a knitting club which knit for charity, and at least once month a number of members go walking, Winter it is during the day, but the summer months it is in the evening.
The group meets at the Bramley Village Hall on the second Thursday of the month at 7.45pm, which is wheelchair accessible with disabled parking area, ramps, and a disabled toilet. Visitors are welcome, please come along and get to know us at Bramley WI. We are looking forward to meeting you
