Chipping Warden and Edgcote Women’s Institute

President: Sue Jempson

We have a thriving Women’s Institute in the village and over the course of a year organise many events including concerts, parties, external speakers and other entertainment.

Our fundraising efforts support local charities – in 2017 our carol concert will be raising funds for Dogs for Good.

We meet at 7.30pm on the first Tuesday of every month (except July) in the Village Hall.  In July our meeting is hosted by a member in their garden.  You don’t need to contact anyone to join – just turn up!  You can come to 3 meetings before deciding to join or not.
