Our Meetings and Schedule

Meetings

Our meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of every month and start at 8pm.

Meetings are open to everyone so you don't have to be a member to come along - just turn up! Meetings are free for all Chapel Pie WI members and there is a small charge of £4 for non-members.

These sessions vary from inspiring guest speakers to crafty get-togethers and other skill-learning events. At the heart of them is an opportunity to meet your new friends for a catch up.

At some meetings we incorporate a Chapel Pie Cooking Club where we invite members to bring along some home-cooked food based on a theme for us all to try one another's creations and share recipe ideas.

And what meeting wouldn't be complete without a raffle? So if you have any unwanted gifts/boxes of chocolate/wine, etc, or if you run your own business and would like to give away a freebie to promote your business, please bring these along as a donation to the raffle to help support the WI.
