Lovedean is part of the Bere Forest Group of WIs.
Lovedean WI was founded in 1957. We are a friendly, enthusiastic and democratically run group with a maximum membership of seventy five.
The group meets at 7.30 pm on the second Tuesday of each month (except August) in Lovedean Village Hall, PO8 9SF. The hall in Lovedean Lane has disabled access and excellent facilities including two halls and a well equipped kitchen.
The regular meeting usually includes a speaker or demonstration, a competition, raffle, ‘bring and buy stall’ and refreshments. Lovedean WI has a thriving craft group which meets on the third Tuesday of the month from September to April. The Book Club is another well supported addition to our regular activities. Our Luncheon group meet the 1st Wednesday of each month.
Apart from our regular activities we organise a varied programme of other events such as theatre trips, walks, social evenings and trips to county events.
We welcome visitors (maximum of three visits) and look forward to meeting you.
