The Walsham Women’s Institute welcomes women of all ages to join in a varied programme of talks and outings. Jam and “Jerusalem”, yes, but so much more!
The local group welcomes a variety of speakers, outings are organised to places of interest including the theatre and occasionally to the West End.
The Suffolk West Federation of WI’s of which Walsham WI is a part provides opportunities to take part other outings, educational workshops, sporting activities and more.
The National Federation expands the horizon even further with the chance to attend courses at the WI College (Denman) in Oxfordshire.
Members also get involved in the WI’s national campaigning on matters of concern to women and their communities such as domestic violence and care of the environment.
