WISince the establishment of the Whixley Women’s Institute in 1926 there have been many changes. The present-day Women’s Institute offers many exciting and varied experiences to all its members. Whixley Women’s Institute is the place to be if you:

  • are looking for friendship fun and a warm welcome
  • enjoy being introduced to new, informative and diverse topics
  • enjoy visiting places of interest
  • enjoy sharing a meal with friends
  • enjoy other entertainment

The Women’s Institute has a lot to offer supporting and helping the local communities in many ways

Our meetings continue to be held in Whixley Village Hall. Our AGM was held on 3rd November and I am pleased to say Joan Dobson was re-elected as President, and the committee has been joined by two new members.
