Sheet WI was founded in 1935. We meet at 7.30 on the first Thursday of the month, usually 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: the next walk will take place on 7 September.
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.
We hold a summer lunch to raise money for a local charity. Sadly, during the pandemic we had to postpone our fundraising activity in support 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; we are delighted to be resuming our support during Covid Recovery.

Programme for 2021
Over the past eighteen months, the Committee have remained in contact with all members by email and phone. We have held one Zoom meeting with a speaker, which was well attended and the committee have met regularly via Zoom to plan for the future. During the Summer members were delighted to be able to gather in small groups in private gardens, following the Government’s Covid19 guidelines. Walks were gradually resumed and the Annual Meeting was held al fresco and blessed with fine weather.
The Committee are presently working carefully through Covid Recovery according to Government guidelines and local risk assessments; our reunion face-to-face meeting took place on 2 September, and we are working with potential speakers to put together a programme of safe and interesting meetings for the coming months. We are presently meeting at Herne Farm Leisure Centre to maximise social distancing, and our next meeting will be on Thursday 4 November when Liz Mullenger will lead an evening of Christmas craft. We’ll keep you updated as the programme develops, but please bear with us as we work our way through this unprecedented situation.
Sheet WI Covid Banner
During lockdown, members of the Craft Group devised a commemorative banner reflecting individual and collective experiences and acknowledging all those who contributed so much to the local community. It can presently be viewed in Petersfield Library.
