Where we meet
When to come along
4th Tuesday of every month at 2.15pm
The Meads WI was founded in 1989 and has a membership of 47 members. We are a friendly, welcoming group with modern ideas. New members and visitors are welcome to come along and observe a meeting before joining. A committee member will greet you and talk to you about our WI and answer any questions you may have.
What we do
Each month we appoint a speaker to give a talk on a particular topic of interest. Sometimes we may have a members’ afternoon to get to know each other this could include a quiz, games and a raffle.
The topics we have enjoyed are, beekeeping, history of Eastbourne, The Mary Rose, 50’s dress design and couture.
We have a number of groups to participate in, usually stopping for a cup of coffee getting to know other members enjoying the same activity: Strollers is a walking group visiting local places of interest; Craft has often a project on the go; Scrabble enjoyed by many; Family History (Genealogy); a Social group visiting a nearby landmark for lunch/ afternoon tea.
We organise visits and outings to places of interest to members.
Our monthly meeting often includes a stall, eg, pre-loved jewellery and handbags, craft items, books available to purchase and a raffle.
We support a local charity with the proceeds from a successful event.
Donations given to the Friends of the DGH Eastbourne, Beachy Head Chaplaincy, JPK Project- a charity for young people with learning difficulties and the Air Ambulance.
