I am really sorry to have to inform you of this but please assume that for the foreseeable future all Chavey Down WI meetings are cancelled. This decision was really hard to make but is consistent with the majority of WIs and we really can’t take the risk with many of our members classified as vulnerable and having to remain in their homes for the next 12 weeks or so.
Please keep in touch with each other and if you know someone who is not on email please can you let them know. Those who are on email but not on Facebook … why not join and link up with our Facebook Group? The Group is for members only so not public and is a good way of keeping in touch.
I hope that all of you are well and stay that way. Remember that getting out for a walk will do you no end of good and help lift the spirits … as long as you remember to wash your hands when you get home … OK, maybe I’m obsessed but honestly, it is the best way to lower the chance of infection.

Welcome to Berkshire Women’s Institute Chavey Down web page.
We were formed in 1975 and will celebrate our 45th Birthday this year!
Our interests include trips to the theatre, gardens, walks, Christmas Markets, lunches & dinners.
We have a book club, a craft evening, monthly coffee mornings and afternoon teas throughout the year.
We meet on the 3rd Monday of the month at St Martin’s Hall in Church Road at 7.45pm.
Please come and join us, we are always looking for new members with different ideas.
I often get asked why the WI? I tell them at our meetings you are yourself, not someone’s Mother, Daughter, Wife, or Grandmother. For 2 hours you can relax, listen to some interesting speakers, chat and have a cup of tea/coffee and cake and perhaps win a raffle prize. We have a flower of the month competition and a competition linked to the subject in the programme and there are cups to win for both. We would welcome you as a visitor or as prospective member you can visit to see if you would like to become a member.
You have found this web page so you are half way there – please have a look around!
We look forward to meeting you.
President of Chavey Down Women’s Institute
