Women's Institute

Welcome to our slot!

We are a lively group of like-minded women enjoying the ideals of the Women’s Institute (WI) of truth, justice, tolerance and fellowship, which are as strong and important now in the 21st Century as they were at the birth of the WI in 1915.

The WI exists to educate women to enable them to provide an effective role in the community, to expand their horizons and to develop and pass on important skills.

All WIs are part of the National Federation of Women’s Institutes, 104 New Kings Road, London SW6 4LY.  Tel:  020 7371 9300.  Fax:  020 7736 3652.  Email:  hq@nfwi.org.uk  There is a website www.theWI.org.uk and a magazine, "WI Life" which comes as part of the membership package.

Outwood WI was formed in 1921. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month at 2.30pm in the Lloyd Hall, Brickfield Road. Visitors are always welcome and we do not charge entry. There is always a welcome cup of tea often with  home made cake to round off the afternoon.

We also have many other activities through the year such as outings to theatres, stately homes, gardens and craft shows. We also run craft workshops as required and have monthly watercolour painting, scrabble, sew knit'n'natter,book and film groups. There is also a local WI Science Group which meets in the Whyte Harte Barn, Godstone , twice a year.
