Membership of the WI gives access to many activities in East Sussex. The Headquarters in Hailsham runs a varied programme of crafts, public speaking, sport and current affairs as well as traditional domestic skills. The National Federation of the WI is involved in campaigns on issues such as saving honey bees, raising awareness of violence against women, reducing food waste, labelling food with country of origin.
Programme of meetings for 2019
This is our centenary year, which we will be celebrating in style, but sadly it will be the final year of our WI unless more volunteers come forward to help with the organisation of the group.
Our meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month, starting at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. Prospective members are welcome at any meeting. Non-members & visitors are welcome at 8pm – charge is £5 to include refreshments.
