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.

Meetings usually take place on the second Monday of each month, in Clarborough Village Hall from 14:00 unless otherwise stated.

Visitors and new members are always welcome to join us at any time of the year; £5 including refreshments. Yearly membership is £42.00 or pro rata as appropriate.
