Calling all you LADIES. Young at Heart, Old in Body- Old in heart, young in body, whatever shape or form!

Your WI (Women’s Institute for those who need to guess) needs you! Well, would like you to join, and what a better time to join than now 15 months for the price of 12.

You don’t even have to join, for the small sum of £3.50 each time you could come for up to 3 times just to see if you like us and what we do, we’re not all ogres some of us aren’t even that old and mostly we have a jolly good time. You could contact Sheila Wade 01288 331391 (Chair), Lesley Wall (Secretary), or Lisa Wade 01288 331794 for a more informal approach.

A branch of the Women’s Institute was formed here in Welcombe on the 8th December 1932. The elected committee at that time were Mrs. Wheeler, President, Mrs. Clark Vice-president, Mrs. Bond Teasurer, Miss Clark Secretary, Mrs. Dennis, Mrs. E. Oke and Miss Ward being the remaining Committee members. For unknown reasons (does anyone know why?) this WI was dissolved a year later and on the same evening the United Womens Guild was formed.

On the 22nd March 1934 the Meddon & Welcombe WI was formed and has continued from strength to strength since that time.
