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.
The WI have two outings planned for this summer with a few places available.
The new Mary Rose Museum and optional harbour tour at Portsmouth on Thursday 21st May, cost £13.50 plus coach approx £15.
Salisbury Cathedral and Arundells, Edward Heath's house in the Cathedral Close, both guided tours, on Monday 29th June, cost £13 plus coach again in the region of £15.
Both these trips offer excellent value and interest.
The Mary Rose Museum is now in its new modern building where the artefacts and reconstructions of the sailors and their lives have been very imaginatively curated.
Salisbury Cathedral houses one of the original copies of the Magna Carta and in it's 800 anniversary year, special exhibitions have been arranged and joint tours with Arundells organised.
If you are interested in either or both of these tours, please contact Di Christie, firstname.lastname@example.org or 01428 714147
