Women's Institute


The Women's Institute - A Modern Voice for Women

The WI offers women the opportunity of sharing friendship and learning, to help widen their horizons, and together to influence local, national and international affairs.  Founded in 1919, Churt WI is one of the oldest in the county.  In 2009 we celebrated our 90th birthday.
