The 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 with 212,000 members in around 6,600 WIs and celebrated its centenary in 2015.
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.

Bewdley WI was formed in September 2014.
Our members have a wide range of interests and skills, the themes of the meetings are deliberately varied, and we are a very active branch of the Worcestershire Federation of WIs.
We have been unable to meet through the lockdown periods of 2020 - 2021, although we have kept in touch with members through collaborative newsletters, reading, discussion and, when allowed, walking groups. We are now delighted to announce that our monthly meetings are expected to start on 5 July - see link to our programme below.
We always encourage potential new members to visit our events which are held on the first Monday of each month at 7:30 pm in St George's Hall, Bewdley, (except when that is a Bank Holiday in which case we meet on the second Monday of the month). We also have a number of regular activity groups. Please come along and see what we are doing.
