Burridge and Park Gate WI could be just the type of WI you are looking for.
We currently have 51 members from the local area and are an active group, always looking for a new challenge and new members. We can do ‘Jam and Jerusalem’ but we do so much more! Our speciality is making people feel welcome and involved from the very beginning, our WI is your WI.
We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month (excepting July) at Royal British Legion, Brook Lane, Park Gate from 7.15pm. Our meetings are always lively with a wide range of speakers, demonstrations and hands on activities throughout the year. We welcome visitors to all of our meetings; it costs nothing to come along as a visitor so why not give us a try? If you let us know you are coming we will arrange for somebody to meet you at the door and guide you through the meeting, but if you want to come along as a quiet observer the first time that is fine too.
In addition to our monthly meetings we get involved in a wide range of activities: art, drama, culture group, craft, walking, mah-jong, darts, New Age Kurling, skittles, trips, fundraising and social events throughout the year as well as local and national WI Campaigns. Membership of Burridge and Park Gate WI will also give you access to a wide range of activities provided by Hampshire County Federation and National WI.
Our full programme is available below.If you would like to speak to somebody before coming along to a meeting or event please contact us. No transport? We organise car-sharing to all events, just let us know that you require a lift.
