About Broad Town Women's Institute

The Broad Town WI are a friendly group of women. We meet in the village hall on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, apart from December when we meet on the 2nd Wednesday. We start with our speaker so please arrive promptly at 7.30pm for a talk or activity which may be educational, inspiring, amusing and energetic.  After the talk we have time for socialising and refreshments.  This is followed by a short business meeting.  We also arrange visits to gardens, pubs, local attractions, and go on summer walks.  With a membership of 27 and growing we are keen to welcome new members. We have had a stall at the Broad Town summer Big Gig for the past few years supplying the festival goers with hot drinks and delicious homemade cakes.

We are affiliated to the Wiltshire federation of WI which in turn is part of the national WI allowing us to make a difference to campaigns such as reducing supermarket packaging, influencing the price of milk at the farm gate and accurate labeling food with the country of origin.  Current campaigns are helping to alleviate loneliness, improving hospital arrangements for carers of people with dementia, helping to reduce plastic waste and trying to end food poverty. 
There is also a dedicated college of further education; Denman college in Oxfordshire, offering the widest range of courses allowing WI members to learn new skills or further existing ones.
If you would like to meet some new friends in the village, have an opportunity to learn something new and maybe influence a national campaign why not come along one evening soon?  Visitors are always welcome and you can try us out without any obligation.
Broad Town Women's Institute - Events and Plans

Our July meeting was held at the White Horse Pub at Winterbourne Bassett.  We took advantage of the lovely warm evening by walking from Broad Hinton Church, across the fields to Winterbourne Bassett where we were met by some non-walkers. There were twenty one of us in all. We chatted over a few drinks and most of us enjoyed a meal. We then made the return journey across the fields as the light was fading and the sky was tinged red with the setting sun.

In August we have our summer outing to Highclere House (better known as Downton Abbey).

In September we will be back in Broad Town Village hall at 7.30pm, with a members meeting when we will be sharing good books we have read, nice places to eat, recommended places to holiday, interesting places to go for a day out etc.

We are a friendly bunch so if you would like to join us and would like more information please phone Jane on 01793 731105.
