Visitors are welcome at our monthly meetings and there is no obligation to join, although there other opportunities should you decide to take the plunge. In recent years, we have established a walking group, a book club, regular coffee mornings and lunches. We also organise other activities throughout the year, including outings and theatre trips. 

The Institute belongs to the Anton Danebury Group within the Hampshire Federation and this consists of other local institutes and has two meetings a year. Hampshire Federation also has two meetings a year, the Spring & Autumn Council Meetings. These usually held in either Portsmouth or Basingstoke and attract well-known national figures as speakers. 

Our Institute usually takes part in various competitions organised by the Federation including skittles, a quiz, scrabble etc., and if you do have a flair for craft, there are always opportunities to put this to good use. Then of course if you are technologically minded these skills can be utilised as well. However, it is not a necessity to have any of these talents to join the WI.

The annual membership fee (for 2016 £37.50) includes the magazine, W.I. Life, which is sent direct to each member. However, if you wish to come along to a meeting as a visitor, then we welcome a voluntary donation of £2 which is then passed on to the local hospice. 

Please don’t be shy come and try us, you can be sure of a warm welcome.
