Women’s Institute

The Women’s Institute has evolved over the years but it is still a perfect place to meet.

The first meeting was held in 1953 in the old Church Rooms but now meets at the Village Hall on the second Thursday each month at 7.15pm.

The meetings involve a short time to discuss business etc and are followed by different speakers each month.

There is a monthly competition which earns points and the person with the most points at the end of the year wins a cup.

We also have a flower of the month competition; each member brings a cut flower from their garden and the other members vote for their favourite. And at the end of the year there is another small prize.

Uplowman WI also hosts a yearly flower show in July (see local events).  This includes classes for flowers, vegetables, cookery, preserves and crafts; something for everyone.

There is a yearly outing and meal; and if possible we fit in another trip each year.

We enter the Mid Devon Show with a club exhibit  and at Christmas we have a dinner out locally– a great evening and enjoyed by everyone.

If you would like to come along then contact the following for details of the next meeting:

  • Secretary:  Clare Norman
