Thompson Womens Institute

The Women’s Institute was formed in 1915 with two clear aims: to revitalise rural communities and to encourage women to become more involved in producing food during the First World War.

Since then our aims have broadened and we are now the largest women’s organisation in the UK with  205,000 members in 6,500 WIs.  Check out our national website for more information

Here at Thompson we have a very active WI group which meets on the second Tuesday of every month at the Village Hall 7.30pm.  Have a look at our 2016 Programme.
