Who are the Balcombe WI

Our group is made up of women of all ages who come together  to enjoy monthly meetings on all sorts of topics. Balcombe WI  was established in 1917 by Lady Gertrude Denman, WI’’s first National Chairman.

What is the Women’s Institute (WI)?

The WI is the largest voluntary women’s organisation in the UK! Just under 7,000 WI’s across the country. It “plays a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a variety of activities and campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities”.  (NFI website). We would love you to come along and find out a little bit more about us, so feel free to come along to a meeting and introduce yourself, no need to tell us in advance. There is a small charge (£1) to come to a meeting as a guest, tea and cake included.
