What we do

The Polegate Sundowners WI was formed in July 2016 following requests for a new evening WI to enable working women, young myms and other busy ladies to attend evening WI meetings. Our members’ ages span six decades, therefore we try to have something for everyone in everything we do. Traditional values with a modern twist!

The Polegate Sundowners WI had members buzzing with excitement during their Bee themed October meeting. Membership is growing rapidly for this new evening WI and members enjoyed socialising and indulging in some homemade cake, honey biscuits and bee topped cupcakes. Meanwhile, Claire Piper’s honey & lemon fudge proved to be very popular, with her recipe being shared on the Sundowners Facebook page immediately after the meeting. Members also welcomed speaker Maggi Pratt who joined them for the evening to give an enlightening talk about bees.
