Arkendale Women's Institute

Welcome to Arkendale WI

If you are looking to make new friends, why not come along and join us on the 1st Wednesday of the month at Arkendale Community Hall.

We are a friendly group of women from nearby villages, from a variety of backgrounds, who enjoy each others company. Our monthly meetings are held on winter afternoons and summer evenings, when we have speakers covering a wide range of topics.

We organise various other activities which you can participate in if they are of interest. These also run monthly and include Beading, Book Club, Crafts, Walks and Lunches. We also have a Summer Social event and of course a Christmas Dinner.

Our meetings come to a conclusion after enjoying a chat, a cup of tea/coffee and food prepared by the members.

If any of the above is of interest, we would look forward to meeting you and if you wish further information, please contact:- Jacqui Knight 07889 498485 or Kath Dewey 01423 340413
