WI plays a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.
Istead Rise WI is a well established, flourishing institute with over 60 members. We hold monthly meetings with interesting speakers and social time.
There is the opportunity to enter several shows during the year including photography, art and produce. We run weekly darts, badminton and art and craft groups and monthly scrabble afternoons. Members can also attend theatre trips, outings, lunches, county and national events.
We meet on the 2nd Tuesday in the month at The Memorial Hall, Lewis Road 7.15 p.m. for a 7.30 p.m. start.
Visitors are very welcome, come along and see for yourself what WI has to offer.
