We are a friendly, thriving group, from different backgrounds and ages, always happy to welcome new members and visitors. The Poulton WI provides an excellent place to meet other residents and become involved in village activities. Our monthly meetings, talks and social occasions are interesting and varied, opening the door to new and different opportunities and interests. We meet at 7.30pm on the second Tuesday of every month at the village hall (unless otherwise stated) and welcome all visitors. If you have never met with the WI before, why not come along, no obligation, to find out more about us.

Our MONTHLY MEETINGS include interesting speakers from different and varied backgrounds and locations; some local, others from farther afield; all will introduce you to a range of topics that can inspire, entertain, challenge your thinking or even introduce you to a new hobby or activity. The Poulton WI has a great community spirit supporting village events and also enjoys getting together for fun activities and social occasions. It’s not just about our monthly meetings but we like to visit inspiring gardens, local places of interest and getting to know each other better through village social events.
