Ashington Women’s Institute meets on the 2nd Thursday of every month from 7.00 till 9.00pm.
The Women’s Institute (WI) was formed in 1915 to revitalise rural communities and encourage women to become more involved in producing food during World War One. Since then the organisation’s aims have broadened and the WI is now the largest voluntary women’s organisations in the UK with over 200,000 members in around 6,600 WI's.
The WI provides women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.
Whether you are in your 20s or 90s, there's something for everyone at Ashington WI. Each month there is something new, from cooking to tribal dance. We drink tea and sometimes eat cake!
Activities take place at Trinity Church Hall on Station Road (NE63 8RN).
