There are many scheduled events throughout the year organised either by their local sub committees or though the WI Federation. Whilst deciding on which event you might like to participate in, there is plenty of time to socialise.
If you are interested in joining please call for information, (see contacts on this page) or turn up at a meeting at the Village Hall at 7.30pm. The WI does not take partisan political positions, though they are interested in current affairs. The cost of membership is currently £36.00 a year and it is open to women of all faiths or none.
They have a regular walking group who generally meet on the last Friday of each month to enjoy a bracing walk. Starting from the shop at 10.00am, the route is varied and there are always opportunities for bird watching whilst enjoying the wonderful countryside we have round here. They usually find a friendly pub or café to end the walk and have a proper chat.
A forward thinking organisation which allows you to chose your degree of participation from attending monthly meetings and listening to a wide range of speakers etc. to joining one of the sub-committees and or the full committee and of course attending the many outings on offer and partaking of the many courses available at Denman College.
