SUTTON, BIGNOR AND BARLAVINGTON WI

FOUNDED 1918

The Women's Institute

 

Sutton, Bignor & Barlavington WI is one of the oldest in the country, established in 1918.

Despite our long history, we are thoroughly modern. We have ten meetings a year, always on the first Wednesday of the month. Our speakers are entertaining and informative; topics next year range from Life as a Bunny Girl to fracking and fitness in later life to the work of a women’s co-operative in Gaza. We hold half our meetings in the afternoon and half in the evening to suit all preferences. Afternoon meetings include famous WI teas, with homemade cakes and sandwiches. Evening meetings offer a bar and finger food.  We also arrange outings during the year.

Membership is open to all women in the area, we have many members from Bury and West Burton as well as the immediate villages.  Guests, both men and women, are very welcome at all our meetings; our evening meetings especially are intended to appeal equally to men.

If you are interested, please look at our programme and do come along to a meeting.

For more information, email our president Janet Mattey janet_richard@btinternet.com.
