Hello and welcome to Copythorne WI.
We meet every second Wednesday in the month at Copythorne Parish Hall, Pollards Moor Road, Copythorne at 2.00pm to 4.45pm. We are a lively group with 62 members. We are 100 years old this year (2017) and had a Centenary Party in September with guests of honour and local neighbouring WIs invited too.
There are seven subgroups within our WI and they are: Art, Book Club, Craft, Darts, Performing Arts Ladies, Scrabble and Walking. Each year we enter the local carnival and have won first prize for two years running. We also steward and enter the New Forest Show and this year were awarded a first in one of the categories.
We are very friendly and welcome visitors.
