Women’s Institute

Women's InstituteThe Women's Institute (WI) was formed in 1915 to revitalise rural communities and encourage women to become more involved in producing food during the First World War. Since then the organisation's aims have broadened and the WI is now the largest voluntary women's organisation in the UK. The WI will celebrate its centenary in 2015 and currently has 212,000 members in around 6,600 WIs.The WI plays a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.

Long Sutton WI is a registered member of the Somerset Federation whose headquarters are at  Wilton Lodge, a beautiful historic Listed building in the centre of Taunton (our County Town). For more information about the Somerset Federation of the WI click here
