We can help you to expand your horizons, take up new interests, learn new crafts and develop new skills. Women of all ages are welcome and we are actively seeking new member's. Come along as a visitor to any of our meetings, take a look at our Programme to see dates and a list of speaker's.
The WI is a non party political, non-sectarian, educational charity and our ideals are for TRUTH, JUSTICE, TOLERANCE AND FRIENDSHIP.
Kingsbridge WI together with Stokenham Evening WI, Silverhill WI (Malborough) and Frogmore & Sherford WI make up the South Hams Group of WIs, who hold an annual Group Meeting. This year it was hosted by the Kingsbridge WI, held on Monday 24th April with award winning close-up magician Zak Stone who gave a talk as well as entertained throughout the evening. More than sixty members came for dinner, cooked & served by the Kingsbridge WI and all agreed it was a fantastic evening.
Each month, we give members a copy of our Federation Newsletter, DFWI News, and our national magazine, WI Life, is delivered to members by post eight times a year.
The South Hams Foods, Crafts and Skills Group (SHFCS) holds workshops, classes and outings which are publicised on our monthly information sheet. This is one of several SHFCS programmes in Devon, any one of which you can attend (consult DFWI News).
Every Wednesday a Country Market is held in the Town Hall Foyer, Kingsbridge from 8.15am until noon. A varied selection of goods and produce is offered for sale. You can become a producer- either regularly or occasionally. Do go and see for yourself what is on offer.
The WI’s own residential college, Denman College (near Oxford), offers up to 500 short-stay courses a year on a vast variety of subjects which are listed in their programme. Kingsbridge WI awards a bursary every other year and other non-bursary members attend regularly.
In the WI you will find friendship and the chance to learn. Together we can influence affairs locally, nationally and internationally.
