The Women's Institute (WI) was formed in 1915 to revitalise rural communities and encourage
women to become more involved in producing food during the First World War.
Since then the aims of our organisation have broadened and the WI is now the largest
voluntary womens organisation in the UK.
The WI will celebrate its centenary in 2015 and currently has 212,000 members in around 6,600 WI's. We play 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 Yelvertoft WI meets at the Village Hall on the second Thursday of any month (except August) at 7.30pm.
You will be most welcome and can experience what we have to offer.
If you want to know more, please ring Barbara Wright (President) 01788 822817.
