Our Meetings

Our meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of every month and start at 7.45 pm for 8.00 pm. They’re 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’s a small charge of £5 for non-members. Our sessions vary from inspiring guest speakers to food and drink tasting, crafty get-togethers and other skill-learning events. At the heart of them all is an opportunity to meet new friends for a catch-up. 

At some meetings we incorporate a cooking club where we invite members to bring along some home-cooked food, based around a theme, for us all to try 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.
