Fairwarp Women’s Institute (WI)

The Women’s Institute (WI) was formed in 1915 to revitalise rural communities and encourage women to become more involved in producing food during the First World War. Since then the organisation’s aims have broadened and the WI is now the largest voluntary women’s organisation in the UK.

Not a WI type person? Neither are the rest of Fairwarp WI. How many WIs do you know with a wine cellar and an entertainment fund under the bed? (we’re not telling you whose bed)

We meet on the second Tuesday of the month at the village hall at 7.30pm and we really do have a lot of fun. No talks on the history of broccoli and you won’t be obliged to take your clothes off – unless you particularly want to.

Extra curricula activities include a reading group, a supper club, theatre visits and a knit and natter group. If you feel your life could do with a bit of pizzazz then come and join us. Contact Heather Dewhurst, Secretary, on 01825 713067 or Susanna Way and Kelly Dowling, Joint Presidents on 01892 662041 and 01892 653963 respectively.
