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 in Lovedean Village Hall, PO8 9SF (except August when we get together in a pub for a drink or meal) . The hall in Lovedean Lane has disabled access and excellent facilities including two halls and a well equipped kitchen and easy parking.
The regular meeting usually includes a speaker or demonstration, a competition, raffle, ‘bring and buy stall’ and refreshments. Lovedean WI runs two craft days each year where you get a chance to learn new skills. The Book Club is another well supported addition to our regular activities. Our popular Luncheon group meet the 1st Wednesday of each month. We have a thriving darts team and we participate in group quizzes and skittles. Opportunities are always available to start up new groups of members with similar interests. During the year we arrange outings and social evenings and trips to county events.
We welcome visitors (maximum of three visits) and look forward to meeting you.
