Barcombe Women's Institute

The Barcombe WI meets on the second Tuesday each month at 7.30, in the Village Hall.

New Members and visitors always welcome! You don't have to make jam, sing Jerusalem and do quilting - honestly!

Why join?

Lots of younger women are now joining WIs around the country. Here's a taste of their reasons:

“Belonging to the WI means being able to make a real difference, through our national and local campaigns.”

“Some of our speakers are inspiring, for example, the woman who took up sailing in her 60s and made a solo journey across the Atlantic.”

“It's a very relaxed, friendly and fun WI. Most of the members are in their 60s and 70s and it's really interesting to talk to those whose families have lived around here for generations.”

“I admire the way the WI seeks to educate its members—I learn something new every month.”

“Many WIs are doing exactly the right thing in introducing fresh ideas and gradual change without doing away with long standing traditions. It is a terrible shame that many young women are still put off joining, by a stereotype which no longer exists.”

Other activities
