Womens Institute United Kingdom

The U.K. Women's Institute was formed in 1915 the aim was to encourage women to become more involved in producing food during the First World War.
One of the branches in my area hold fortnightly sales of home made/grown produce and handmade goods such as pies, cakes, jams, pickles, plants, fruit & vegetables, knitted/crochet items, hand sewn aprons peg bags, handmade cards, & jewellery.

The Institute celebrated its 95th anniversary in 2010.  The WI is a diverse organisation open to all women, and there are now WIs in towns and cities as well as villages all over the U.K.

  1. I used to love going along to the Women's Institute meetings with my Mum (in Clifton Hampden, Oxfordshire), when I was a child. They used to organise so many events in the village and it was great place to meet up with friends and neighbours and to learn something new.
