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

We have had another very successful year maintaining our maximum membership of 40 and now operating a waiting list for any interested ladies.

We have enjoyed an excellent programme of speakers during the year who have covered a wide range of topics.

Members have supported many federation events, attending the annual meeting at Trinity Park, entering teams in the quiz evenings and sending representatives to speakers showcases.

To support the village hall we have continued to plant and care for the flower tubs at the hall entrance during the year. A number of our members cooked and served at the successful sausage and mash evening which was organized to help raise funds for the hall refurbishment, and we are planning a cream tea afternoon on the 21st July to support the same project.

Unfortunately the litter pick had to be cancelled due to bad weather but we will support the Parish Council when a new date is arranged.

Following a talk on the Beehive Project we have decided to support the home in Nakuru, Kenya by collecting 1 & 2p coins in their special jam jars. This is a rescue centre established to provide a home and education for child mothers and their babies.
