Our 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.
