Bramley WI is a very active and well established WI. Bramley WI now has around 25 members. It is fun loving and welcome visitors of all ages. The Programme is varied with speakers, demonstrators and social activities. There is an active Beading group which usually meets monthly. Bramley WI also undertakes village improvements, for example the Millenium, garden project. Lots of members belong to the Knitting Club which knits for charity and often there is a walk organised on a monthly basis followed by lunch to include non walkers. During the summer the walk is early evening followed by a drink at a local pub. We also have a lunch/supper club and anyone is welcome to join in the fun.
Visitors are always welcome.
Please come along and get to know us at Bramley WI
We look forward to meeting you

During the lockdown of 2020 members helped to contribute Scrub bags for nurses as they had to change their Scrubs everyday
Members made around 150 bags which went toward the 350 from the village donated to Southampton and Basingstoke hospitals
Also during Lock down members have continued to work on the WI garden at Clift Meadow in the centre of the village
The Clift Meadow millennium garden as its name implies was started in 2000 and had unfortunately over the years got overgrown, full of thistles, dock leaves and other weeds. Members of Bramley WI started tending and caring for the garden in 2005 and have worked hard to restore its beauty since.
Clift Meadow Trustees have recently arranged for some of the dead trees and overhanging tree canopy to be removed and cut back.
It is so much lighter now and we look forward to returning to tend the garden later this year when we are able to do so.
With the extra light , we hope the garden will really bloom this year and get even more admiring glances and comments from the Bramley villagers.
The photos below show some of our time out.
