Earl Stonham Women’s Institute offers a warm welcome to women living in both Earl Stonham and Little Stonham.
What do we do? The aims of the WI are to educate women and improve the quality of life for rural communities. The WI is the largest women’s organisation in the UK with over 210,000 members, and it lobbies government and industry on a wide range of issues.
Here in Earl Stonham we are possibly better known for our catering!
Where do we meet? We meet in the Village Hall Club Room on the third Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm. There is usually an interesting speaker and time to chat with friends old and new.
Become a member Membership in 2018 is £41 and includes 12 meetings, a federation news magazine and our national magazine “WI Life”.
Do contact us if you would like to come to a meeting so we can look out for you.
