We are a diverse group with ages ranging from mid 20s to ‘Old enough to know better’. We welcome anyone and everyone, from the traditional WI jam maker to the traditional WI belly-dancer (yes, we’ve done that!).
We run a programme that tries to be as varied as our membership. During the course of a year we run a mixture of workshop evenings where we join in, demonstrations, and talks. Previous events have included Zumba, Salsa and Belly-dancing for the active; making corn dollies, a stone-cutting demonstration, gift-wrapping, flower arranging, old-fashioned children’s party, mountain rescue, dogs for the disabled, Quaker history, a talk from a local author and another by a forensic scientist.
As part of the LFWI and NFWI we also have the opportunity to join in with other WIs for trips, conferences, workshops, lectures, walks, quizzes and a whole host of other things.
