The women’s institute (WI) was established shortly before First World War, “to enable women to enjoy different aspects of rural life, including arts, crafts and sciences, and advance their education in culture and crafts.” The WI WI is now the biggest voluntary national organisation for women.
Apart from a break during the 1950s, King’s Sutton WI has been in existence since early in the 20th Century. We meet on the third Wednesday of every month at the Millennium Memorial Hall. These formal meetings involve listening to guest speakers, taking part in activities and socialising! Outside of meetings, we have regular outings to gardens, places of interest, and to workshops at WI House in Northampton and at Denman College, the WI college near Abingdon.
