The WI

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

The Women’s Institute (WI) is now the largest voluntary women’s organisation in the UK and will celebrate its centenary in 2015 and currently has over 210,000 members in around 6,600 WIs.

The Eaton WI meet at 7:30pm on the last Thursday of each month at the Church Hall and anyone interested in joining the WI should contact Dorothy on 01260 276385 for more information.  You can come along for two meetings entirely free of charge, and if then you wish to join us the annual subscription is £34.70 which gives 10 meetings with speakers, one social evening and the Christmas Party (we have this in the hall with a caterer which we all pay for) plus entitlement to go to the group and federation meetings.
