The WI

The Women’s Institute have been running for 100yrs and are still going strong , here in Ogwell we have been in existence since 1928, we offer new members the opportunity to meet with like minded women, over a cup of tea and a chat. Meetings include a range of activities and speakers

The evenings are informal and comprise of  a wide range of speakers which span from crafts, food tasting, health and fitness, history and supporting local charities

There is also a trading stall for books, and vegetables/plants grown by the members, and a stall for home baking !!

In addition we organise in conjunction with the garden society day trips. We support the local theatre, with pantomime outings and other productions

We fund raise annually and run a tombola stall at Christmas fayres and also provide cream teas at the Ogwell summer fete.
