Welcome to Sutton WI
Sutton WI has grown in strength since its formation in 2016. We have an active and varied programme of events throughout the year. From making beautiful craftwork, sugar craft novelties and Christmas crackers our members showed they have many talents and skills. As in previous years, we made poppies for a wreath that was placed at the Sutton War Memorial on Remembrance Day. Our quiz nights are great fun and we send a team to compete with other local WI's.
We have interesting talks about all manner of things - have a look at Our Programme page for 2022.
The Annual Federation Spring Meeting was attended by our members who thoroughly enjoyed the speakers.
This year we hosted the South Holderness Rally. It was a 1920's themed event (originally planned for 2020). Entrants to all the competition classes outshone themselves this year showing an abundant amount of talent. The evening was a celebration with dancing to a wonderful band, eating fantastic food prepared by the Sutton WI members and plenty of fun . Prize winners in each class were presented with their trophy's. A huge success!
A Spring Fair was held in March. We had various tombola's, a raffle, stalls that sold homemade cakes, savouries, pastries, jams, pickles and chutneys, books, cd's, bric-a-brac, pre-loved clothes, plants, handmade cards and unique handmade goods. Once again it was an overwhelming success.
If there are any ladies that think this sounds like fun and are keen to enjoy female company, new skills and experiences and would also be willing to share with others their knowledge and expertise – we would like you to join us at Sutton WI.
We meet at St. James's Church Hall Church Street, Sutton on the first Wednesday of the month at 7pm. We have a speaker or demonstration or activity and afterwards attend to WI business. There is the opportunity to get to know one another over a cup of tea or coffee. In addition to our monthly meetings we currently have two additional groups, a Book Group that meets at the Duke of York pub, Church Street, Sutton on the second Thursday of the month at 7pm and the Craft Group that meets at the Old Reading Rooms (now Sutton Leisure and Sports) 17 Church Street, Sutton every Tuesday between 1:30pm and 3:30pm. In May 2022 two new groups have been formed - Sutton WI Walkers and WI Green Fingers. We are always looking to expand our social activities for the benefit of our members.
