Curry Rivel Women's Institute
Thurs 10th May 2018
Meetings Start at 10am for 2 hours
AGM and Resolutions
Competition — A limerick
Our institute was started in 1922 and has been thriving since then. We meet on the second Thursday of the month (except August) at 10.00am in the Village Hall.
We have garden visits, pub lunches, a regular monthly walk, visits to local places of interest, skittles matches and other activities. We also help the local school by hearing readers as well as making Story Sacks to illustrate their favourite story books. Our Institute is part of the Somerset Federation and we also have close links with a number of other Institutes in the area. Members support a wide variety of events organised by both the county and other local WIs. Every member is also part of the National Federation of WIs, based in London, which campaigns on a wide range of topics on our behalf. Each month, members receive a free copy of the County News and eight times a year a copy of WI Life, produced by the National Federation, delivered by post.
