About our WI
Bramshaw WI is situated in the New Forest. We have 74 members and pride ourselves on the welcome new members receive. Our Village Hall is comfortable, bright and cheerful with a large car park.
We are a very caring and supportive WI. We meet on the first Thursday of each month at 2.00 for 2.15pm to give us time to visit our wide variety of stalls which includes a thriving produce stall. Besides our monthly meeting, we walk, enjoy pub lunches, go to the theatre, hold various evening events (a favourite being fish and chips evenings), and visit places of interest at home and abroad. We play scrabble, darts, and Mah Jong.
We fund raise to send two members yearly for a course at Denman College (by ballot): these are greatly sought after prizes and the members who win are much envied.
We also have a lively Craft Group, where a large variety of skills are demonstrated and enjoyed. We enter inter WI competitions (held at New Forest and Romsey Shows) and each year endeavour to raise money for local charities and ACWW.
Come and visit us, we will be very pleased to see you – our monthly teas are legendary!
