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:
May 14th. around Selborne; June 11th around Terwick; July 9th. Petersfield & Durleighmarsh ; August 13th. Droxford; Sept. 10th. Alton & Holybourne; Oct. 8th Levin Down, Singleton .
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. A coach outing to Exbury Gardens took place on Thursday, 16th May. and on 24th September there is an evening outing to the Clanfield Observatory.
We hold a summer lunch to raise money for a local charity. This year we are supporting the work of Winton House in Petersfield and we held a cake sale in Rams Walk on Saturday 6th July which raised almost £200. As well as cakes we sold beeswax food wraps made by our craft group as part of the WIs continuing campaign to cut down on the use of plastics.
