Clarborough & District Womens’ Institute The ideals of the Women's Institute of truth, justice,
tolerance and fellowship
are as strong and important now in the 21st century as they were at the birth of the WI in 1915.

The Wi exists to educate women, to enable them to provide an effective role in the community, to expand their horizons and to develop and pass on important skills.

In the present coronavirus emergency all W.I. meetings and events are cancelled until further notice.

Well!  Hasn't covid-19 put a spanner in the works? Instead of our usual programme of meetings and outings we, like everyone else, had to batten down the hatches and support each other as best we could.  Chatty phone calls, little notes pushed through doors and a friendly wave from a safe distance have been so important for keeping up our spirits.  At the time of writing some members are enjoying our series of (socially distanced) summer evening strolls and the committee are working hard to think of activities that we can all enjoy within the current guidelines. Hopefully it won't be long before our meetings can begin again.  For the latest information about our activities keep a watch on our facebook page, this  website and the various notice boards around the villages.  See you soon!

Meetings usually take place on the second Monday of each month, in Clarborough Village Hall from 19:00 for start at 19:30 unless otherwise stated.

Visitors and new members are always welcome to join us at any time of the year; £4 including refreshments.

Yearly membership is £42.00 or pro rata as appropriate.
