About Us

We are a small WI based in the village of Fairwarp on the Ashdown Forest meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm in Fairwarp Village Hall. Our members come from the village, neighbouring villages and as far afield as Crowborough. Guests and prospective new members can be assured of a warm welcome.

What we do

In ‘normal times’ we have a wide variety of Speakers; we have enjoyed learning about Great American Houses, Charles Dickens, Coco Channel, bee-keeping and the notorious women of Brighton, to name but a few. During the meeting we enjoy a light supper of sandwiches, savouries and cakes which are provided by members on a refreshment rota. We are still holding our monthly meetings, with a Speaker, on Zoom and we also send out a newsletter to our members each month to keep in touch.

We have several groups within our WI – Needles & Natter, Book Club and Supper Club. We have enjoyed visits to Gardens, locally and further afield, playing Skittles and Curling. Each Summer we have a stall at Fairwarp Village Fete to raise a little extra for our funds but mainly because we enjoy being part of the community. 2021 is our Centenary year, in March we will be 100 years old!
