The meetings usually begin with a brief business session, followed by a talk (e.g. “A Year Behind the Veil”) or craft activity (e.g. glass painting) and end with supper. Talks and visits planned for you this year include “Easter Cake Decorations” and a day visit to Killhope Lead Mining Museum. The full 2011 programme is available (as a PDF document, for printing on A4).

The Women’s Institute is the largest women’s organisation in the UK, with 215,000 members in 7,000 Institutes. We offer women an opportunity to make an impact on their communities, to influence local, national and world issues affecting the social, economic and environmental life of families and communities, and to learn new and traditional skills.
There are also regional meetings and events for those who wish to attend, and various residential courses at the Women’s Institute College near Oxford.
