The WI plays a unique role in providing women with opportunities, the chance to build new skills, take part in a variety of activities and to campaign on issues which matter to them and their communities.

Anyone interested in joining is always welcome to come along and try out one of our meetings. For more information contact Susan Kerridge Tel: or:
