FlowerWelcome to Berkshire Women’s Institute Chavey Down web page.
We were formed in 1975 and celebrated our 40th Birthday in 2015.
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
