About Broad Town Women's Institute

The Broad Town WI are a friendly group of women. We meet in the village hall on the on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, apart from December when the date may vary. Currently we are trialling having our speaker before our meeting so please arrive promptly at 7.30pm for a talk given by an outside speaker which may be educational, inspiring, amusing, energetic; followed by a short business meeting. After the talk we have time for socialising and refreshments. We also arrange visits to gardens, pubs, local attractions, and summer walks. With a membership of 27 and growing we are keen to welcome new members. We have had a stall at the Broad Town summer Big Gig for the past few years supplying the festival goers with hot drinks and delicious homemade cakes.

We are affiliated to the Wiltshire federation of WI which in turn is part of the national WI allowing us to make a difference to campaigns such as reducing supermarket packaging, influencing the price of milk at the farm gate and accurate labeling food with the country of origin.
 
There is also a dedicated college of further education; Denman college in Oxfordshire offering the widest range of short courses allowing WI members to learn new skills or further existing ones.
 
If you would like to meet some new friends in the village, have an opportunity to learn something new and maybe influence a national campaign why not come along one evening soon? Visitors are always welcome and you can try us out without any obligation.
