Otford Village Women's Institutes

 

Are you new to this area, recently retired, at home with a young child or looking for new people to meet and things to do?

Why not join the W.I. and make new friends and develop new interests?

Forget any preconceived ideas you may have about the Women's Institute. We are at the forefront of many topical debates on such issues as SOS for honeybees, increasing the numbers of midwives and starting a nationwide conversation about organ donations.

We have two flourishing W.I.'s in Otford, both of which offer very varied and comprehensive programmes. We have entertaining and informative speakers, music, sport, home economics, art, handicrafts, darts, discussion groups etc. and outings to many interesting places.

The two groups all hold their meetings in Otford Village Memorial Hall.

We are always on the look out for new mums, looking for friendly company and to meet like-minded ladies.
