Women’s Institute

The first Uplowman WI meeting was held in the Church rooms on October 10th 1953.

The rest as they say is history because we are a still very much a happy, diverse, innovative group of ladies that meet in the village hall on the second Thursday in the month at 7.15.

 Having discussed the business as quickly as possible we then sit back and enjoy either a very good speaker or demonstration. Something for everyone.

 During the tea and chat time a chance to shop for a bargain on the bring and buy or even get a new outfit on our clothes swap stall. This being one of our environmentally friendly ideas.

We usually start a new reduce plastic idea i.e. no cling film, make a bag not use a plastic one, reuse and share plastic flower pots.

 We encourage members to have a go at many “in house” classes. Painting, machine sewing, felting, flower arranging to name a few.  Of course, exercise as well, the walking group for all abilities well supported. We enjoy various outings and of course “food “features on the itinerary.

You will be very welcome to join us.
