We are a friendly and lively bunch and welcome women of all ages and background. We have a range of activities which we hope will appeal to all including learning new skills, interests and making new friends. We have a range of speakers and there is a chance of a natter over a cup of tea/coffee and biscuits. Occasionally we have outings. See our program list for forthcoming events.

As we are a small W.I. we now find large fundraising events difficult so this year (2019-20) we have chosen to support the food bank in Trowbridge with an emphasis on providing items for women and children as well as food items. Our May meeting was our annual Resolutions where we are are asked by the National WI to discuss two topics which will then be used to lobby the government to take action. The topics this year were to preserve local, rural bus services and to encourage more women to attend smear tests.
