Grasmere W.I. 1919-2019


We meet at 2pm at Grasmere Village Hall.

At the entrance members of Grasmere WI pay 50p for a raffle ticket .(£4 for visitors ) This money goes towards the cost of the hall and speakers, and tea and cakes is included.The prize is provided by one of our members.


The meeting begins with the singing of Jerusalem.

Members will have received the minutes of the last meeting by email, so those are quickly agreed. Members are then told about forthcoming events that might interest them. Other local WIs often invite us to events they are running. The Federation puts on events that we can join in with. There are also lots of craft classes running that you can go to if you want to learn something new or brush up your skills. 


We then settle back and enjoy our speakers. The list of speakers can be found on the meetings page. Our speakers often illustrate their talks with photographs or with displays of objects on their subject. We learn a lot and thoroughly enjoy the enthusiam of speakers.

After the speakers- the famous W I tea! Tea and homemade cakes, with plenty of chatter and a chance to talk with the speaker.

If you are thinking of joining the W.I., why not come along for a free taster meeting?  Just check the meeting list, and if you're not sure where to come, contact any member and we'll meet up with you and bring you along.

If you're a WI member on holiday in Grasmere we would love to welcome you to one of our meetings.
