WELCOME T0

 OULTON WOMEN’S INSTITUTE

 

Visitors are always welcome.  "We don't sing 'Jerusalem' and some of us cannot make jam and you don't have to be a great cook, so don't be shy!!"

We meet every second Monday of the month, at 7.30 pm, in Oulton Village Hall.

We are always happy to see new faces so do come along and enjoy a meeting with us.

As you will see from our programme for 2018/2019, below, we are entertained at most of our meetings by guest speakers who talk about a host of different subjects, such as practical ideas for the home, local history, environmental issues, natural history and many more subjects.   Also, we hold craft evenings, visit places of interest and enjoy meals out.

We help to develop community spirit by involving the WI in the Oulton Village Fete each year in June and by hosting a Christmas lunch for older members of the community in December.  

If you are unsure about attending one of our meetings on your own, we always meet and greet all visitors to our meetings.   

If you are new to the village, it is a great way to get to know other people.
