Waterside WI was formed in 1974 and currently has a membership of 42. We are a very friendly group and our members range from the young to the more mature. Some of our members have been with us since inception.
We are very proud to be part of the National Federation of Womens Institutes which has over 205,000 members across the UK.
Our committee is made up of volunteers who are voted in annually. Our current President is Maria Tinkler, Secretary Alison Elgar and Treasurer Sandra Withers.
We meet on the second Tuesday of every month at 7:30 at the Dibden Parish Hall, West Street, Hythe, SO45 6AA.
We always welcome new members and visitors. Why not bring a family member, friend or neighbour to join us one Tuesday.
