WHEN DO WE MEET?
Chilwell WI, like most others in Nottinghamshire, get together once a month for a meeting. We meet at the Christchurch Lounge on Lime Grove - click here for a map.
These monthly meetings take place on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. The meeting begins at 2pm but we start gathering a little earlier to make sure we are ready to kick off on time.
The meeting lasts about 2 hours so we are usually on our way home by 4pm.
They are very friendly affairs and 2 minutes after you come through the door you will have made a new friend.
You can just turn up on the day or you can contact us and have a chat before the day so we can look out for you arriving. The hardest bit is deciding to come along - the rest is easy!
WHAT DO WE DO?
These meetings give us a chance to get together and chat with our WI friends over a cuppa. They also allow our committee to give out notices telling us what events and activities are available to us in the coming weeks arranged by our WI, the Group, the Notts Federation or National Federation.
There is also some form of entertainment for the afternoon. This might be a speaker, or a chance to have a go at an activity or craft. Sometimes this will be run by one of our members and at others by an external tutor.
There might be a raffle or a book sale table and maybe event a quiz or a competition.
Come along to one of our meetings and see for yourself what we get up to. Finding the right WI is like tracking down a comfortable pair of shoes - you sometimes have to try a few on for size before you find the right one. Hopefully we can help you find the right one for you.
