Leigh WI

Next Event

We are waiting for details of the next event


Leigh has a flourishing WI which has been in existence for over 90 years and currently has a membership of around 35. The majority of our members live in Leigh but a number come from the surrounding villages including Yetminster, Chetnole Hilfield and Hermitage.

Our meetings take place on the last Tuesday of every month in Leigh Village Hall. Meetings begin at 7.30pm which allows time for those members who work to be able to attend. We also hold outings (non members welcome), coffee mornings, a monthly lunch club and we organise  an annual Jumble Sale every spring. On top of this there are many varied outings and events organised by the Dorset Federation of Women’s institutes which are open to all members.

Our members are also very much involved in village life in general, helping out with the Leigh Village Flower Show and the village Open Gardens event. Members are also part of the team which runs the Leigh Senior Citizens’ Luncheon Club which is held once a month.

We are friendly group and always very happy to welcome new members.
