About Us

We are a friendly group with over 90 members.  We meet monthly to listen to an inspiring speaker and have time to socialise.  There is, however, no meeting in August, and our December meeting is for members only as it is our Christmas party.  

It is important to note that we have afternoon meetings part year and evening meetings part year, as follows :

April to July inclusive meetings 7.00pm - 9.00pm in Beaminster Public Hall, Fleet Street.
No meeting in August.
September to March meetings 2.00pm - 4.00pm in Beaminster Public Hall, Fleet Street.

Beaminster WI was established on 2 January 1918 so is one of the oldest WIs in England at over 100, and plays a significant part in community life in this beautiful small town.

There are a number of Beaminster WI sub groups (available to Beaminster WI members only), and these include :

  • Book Clubs
  • Craft & Chatter
  • Discussion Group
  • Exercise Class, and a separate Chair Exercise Class
  • Scrabble
  • Sunday Lunch
  • Walk and Talk

Many firm friendships are formed from participating in these, and no member will be excluded from any sub group because it's full.  If necessary a second (or more) group will be set up.

Beaminster WI is always open to new members and up to three meetings can be attended as a guest to give visitors a chance to decide if they would like to join.

We have a dedicated Noticeboard in Beaminster Square where details of the forthcoming WI meeting are posted.  
There is also a telephone number for any further queries.
