Welcome to the Sullington Windmills Women’s Institute Website!
While the COVID-19 restrictions prevent us having face-to-face meetings, we are getting together each month online. Contact Erika email@example.com Tel: 01903 742 039 for details of our next virtual meeting “Would WI Lie To You?”, May 20th at 7.30pm, and to enter the 2020 Summer Rose Competition.
Our Institute was established in October 1969 and we enjoyed celebrating our 50th birthday last year (maybe you could be there to help us celebrate the next birthday?).
We have a membership of around 65 ladies, with a good range of ages and interests. We meet on the 3rd Wednesday evening each month. Meetings are held at the Parish Hall, Thakeham Road, Storrington RH20 3PP at 7.30pm. Should you be tempted to take the plunge and visit us, you will be assured of a very warm welcome. There is plenty of off-street parking, disabled access, plus the hall has a hearing loop and we use a microphone at meetings.
**** There is NO additional charge for members to attend meetings, and non-members are welcome to join us for three meetings at NO cost ****
The format of most meetings is business/notices etc., then a guest speaker or demonstrator, followed by refreshments and social time (and the inevitable WI raffle!). We also run social and fundraising events throughout the year. These have included wine-tasting and skittles evenings, a games night, visits to local places of interest, luncheons and bring-and-buy sales tables.
There are monthly meetings of Craft, Walking and Science Groups. In addition the West Sussex Federation of WIs offers a varied programme of entertainment and educational activities throughout the year.
Currently the annual subscription is £43 however, you are welcome to visit us on up to three occasions at no cost.
We would love to see you at one of our meetings, why not give us a try. You can just turn up (at this time, we recommend you check that the meeting is going ahead) or let us know in advance that you are coming by contacting our President, Erika Brichta, firstname.lastname@example.org Tel: 01903 742 039, or our Secretary, Sara Harden, email@example.com
Go on: what are you waiting for?!
