Glapthorn Women's Institute

Glapthorn Women's Institute is a friendly group of local ladies who usually meet at 7.30 pm in Glapthorn Village Hall on the first Wednesday in the month, except for August. We also usually have one outing a year, at least, and two fundraising events. Unfortunately due to the ever-changing COVID19 situation, the committee has elected to hold meetings virtually, using Zoom until the start of the new subscription in April 2021 - unless the situation changes drastically.

Our meetings are lively and interesting, so please check out our current programme of events on this site.

The WI is offering a discounted price for people joining the WI for the remainder of the current subscription year (end March 2021).

Visitors are very welcome, please contact us via email to arrange.

If you would like further information about Glapthorn WI, please ring our President, Sian Fox on 01780 433510, or send us an email Glapthorn WI

Glapthorn WI is affiliated to the National Federation of Women's Institutes
