Our members enjoy walking,wining and dining,trips to the theatre and places of interest. We are involved in craft and gardening projects.
Most of all we have a large circle of friends
Bramley WI was formed in 1919 and was originally an afternoon Institute. It folded for a few months in 1990 due to lack of officers but reformed as an evening Institute since so many members worked during the day. Bramley WI is fun loving and welcomes visitors be they young or old. The programme is varied with speakers, demonstrations and social activities. Bramley WI also undertakes village improvements for example the Millennium Garden Project, pictured below. We have enter the New Forest Show for several years which has resulted in gold and silver stars. We also have a knitting club which knit for charity, and at least once month a number of members go walking, it is during the day in the winter and in the summer months the evening.
The group meets at the Bramley Village Hall on the second Thursday of the month at 7.45pm. The hall has wheelchair access with disabled parking area, ramps, and a disabled toilet. Visitors are welcome, please come along and get to know us at Bramley WI. We are looking forward to meeting you
