Sheet WI was founded in 1935. We meet at 7.30 on the first Thursday of the month in Sheet Village Hall. Visitors are always welcome at our meetings so if you have moved to the area, would like a new interest or just wonder what belonging to a WI involves, why not come along. A friendly welcome awaits you.
We are part of the Petersfield Villages group of WIs and enjoy meeting up with others for quizzes, skittles matches and interesting speakers.
From April to November there are monthly walks in the lovely countryside around Petersfield followed by a pub lunch: this year’s programme of walks will be posted in the spring.
A book group and a craft group meet most months.
We normally have two outings each year but watch out for more informal ‘pop up’ activities in the year ahead. Last year we had a coach outing to Exbury Gardens and an evening visit to the Clanfield Observatory.
We hold a summer lunch to raise money for a local charity. In 2020 we will be raising money to support the work of FitzRoy in Petersfield which aims to transform lives by supporting people with learning disabilities to do the things that make a real difference to their everyday lives.
