100 Years after the first WI was founded in North Wales, a brand new Women’s Institute has been set up in Whitchurch and extends a warm welcome to potential new members.
Eglwys Newydd WI was established in January 2016 and meetings are held during the evening. They meet at 7pm on the second Tuesday of each month in The Methodist Church Hall on Kelston Road by the roundabout near Whitchurch Library. Their next meeting will be on Tuesday 10 May at 7pm.
The WI aims to inspire and educate, and, as a brand new WI, they hope to develop Eglwys Newydd WI into everything their members want it to be. They are putting together a programme of events and activities to reflect this. Over the next few months, they have speakers booked on a wide range of topics from mindfulness, jewellery making, tea tasting, a women’s overseas charity, history of Mrs Beeton and before Christmas – a masterclass in present wrapping.
Spokesperson Julie Collard told Living Magazines:
“We are a friendly WI and our current members range in both age and interests! If you think you might be interested, why not come along, meet us and see for yourself. Joining the WI is a great opportunity to socialise and make new friends from within your community. You may find that the neighbour you never get chance to speak with will be there! So whether attending on your own or with a friend, be assured you really will be made very welcome. We hope to see you there.”
