Women’s Institute

Caerwys WI meets (usually) on the second Monday of the month at 7.30pm (usually) at The Memorial Institute. There is a speaker, demonstration, workshop or other event and we have recently seen a surge of interest in the group with many new members joining.

In addition there are several subgroups including a book group which meet on other Monday evenings.

We also participate in Town events such as Brains, Skill & Chance and the litter pick as well as attending some of the events at other WI’s and going on trips.

Do come along to see what we get up to, non-members can attend two meetings as visitors but note one or two meetings are members only as they have limited numbers. If you would like further information contact Sonia (details below).

Caerwys Women’s Institute – Message from Sonia Hawes (President)

The 2020 year was a strange one for WI and, to make up for lost meetings, the year was extended so the new WI year now runs from April 2021 to March 2022. Although we weren’t able to meet in person except from January 2020 – March 2020 and for an outdoor meeting last summer, we made up for the lack of speakers with goodies bags, afternoon tea in a box, plants, masks and some zoom meetings as well as a zoom book group, a twice weekly walking group and conservation and wildlife gardening group; and, when allowed to meet others outdoors.

The 2021-2022 year is still a little uncertain but we have a flexible list of meetings pencilled in including a garden visit, a BBQ, talks, a well being day and various other activities. The book group will continue online and in person depending on the covid rules and the walking group will restart as soon as possible. A new gardening group with an emphasis on wildlife and conservation will also begin as soon as possible.

If you would like to join us the fee is £44 for the whole year and you are assured of getting excellent value for money. It is a good way of getting to know people and making friends. If you’d like to join, or would like more information please contact Sonia, I’d love to hear from you.
