Why not come along to one of our meetings held on the first Tuesday of every month (except August) at 7.30 pm in the Methodist Hall, High Street, Lee on the Solent PO13 9HY. We offer a very friendly and lively WI which meets in the evening to enable women of all ages to join us.
Our venue is disabled friendly with an access ramp, wide doors and a disabled toilet.
We have a dedicated Visitor Member who will be there to assist you and answer any questions that you may have, so feel free to come with or without a friend, you will not be on your own for long.
We hold monthly meetings with opportunities to make new and renew old friendships over a cup of tea/coffee and a chat, with interesting talks and discussions on a wide range of subjects, along with a raffle and members’ competitions.
Extra activities take place weekly and monthly too, with Guided Walks on the second Thursday, Craft group meets on the third Tuesday afternoon, Darts group play on a Friday morning, Walking Netball is available on Monday evenings and our Choir sings on a Friday afternoon; we also have a luncheon club which allows members to join with old and new friends over a lunch at a local pub/restaurant. We also join in the Skittles, Darts and Quiz competitions organised by the Hampshire County WI.
We also organise great outings to differing venues, in the past we have visited the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and Exbury Gardens. Our current annual trip is a day trip to Lymington.
We are part of the Peninsula group and also have links with other WIs in local, county and national venues.
So come and visit us – we would love to meet you.
