Meetings are held in the village hall in Dennington on the second Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm.

Although WI meets on the second Wednesday of the month, there are a number of arranged visits and events during the year. In addition to these, there are a number of events that are organised by Suffolk East WI and members can attend for a reduced charge. The events range from countryside walks to cookery or gardening demonstrations.

There is now a waiting list to join. If you are interested, please contact the President or Secretary, details are given above.

The schedule of meetings for 2019 appears below.

Report to Annual Parish Meeting

Dennington WI has enjoyed a very successful year, maintaining our membership at 40.

Chris Thomas has produced an excellent programme of speakers throughout the year.

Members attended several Federation events including the annual meeting held in March at Trinity Park.

We continue to plant and maintain the flower tubs at the village hall, joined in the village litter pick and support the Beehive and Lighthouse projects.

In addition hosted a very successful Cream Tea event raising over £500 towards the village hall refurbishment fund.

Having to move to the school hall whilst the building work was in progress we were unable to hold our annual Christmas Party, so a large group of ladies attended the Nutcracker at Snape Maltins.

To celebrate our return to the village hall we  held a Valentines Dinner for over 60 members and visitors with catering supplied by Steve Hambling.
