A small friendly W.I with members from the surrounding area meeting at 7.30.p.m. in Chawton Village Hall, on the second Wednesday of each month. Handy if you work in the day time, as some members do. The Institute was founded in May 1950. We enjoy ourselves with interesting Speakers, outings and visits to the cinema, theatre and gardens for example. Helping with the Village Fete is always a great social occasion, as well as selling our wares and raising the profile of our WI. We all look forward to our events. Group Skittles and Quiz are entered with some members doing very well. Please feel free to attend a meeting as a guest, we hope you will enjoy the evening as much as we do, and perhaps will become a new member….. Education and friendship awaits.
Happy enjoyable times with W.I.
