East Leake Women’s Institute

East Leake Women's Institute

Welcome to East Leake WI -  a friendly and enthusiastic group which has  been active in our village for over 90 years combining traditional values with new ideas to reflect our ever changing world .   Our meetings  take place on the second Tuesday of every month in the village hall at 7.30 pm and include a speaker, an update on WI matters  and social time with refreshments to chat and meet new friends. We have a varied programme of speakers  and organise daytime and evening activities between meetings, including craft groups, walks, lunches, social events and outings.

We have around 40 members of all ages.

The annual subscription for 2021 has been reduced to  £22.40 (to reflect the impact of the pandemic on our programme ) and is on a sliding scale for newcomers throughout the year. Members pay £1 at the door for refreshments and a raffle ticket. Visitors are very welcome at a cost of £4.

Membership benefits include the national  WI magazine 'WI Life', full voting rights, the county newsletter and admission to all  WI activities. East Leake is part of the National Federation of Women's Institutes and the Nottinghamshire Federation, for more information just click on the links below.

We have now reopened with a full programme of speakers and activities in place (subject to current COVID guidance) so why not come along and  join us!
