PEOPLE have always heard of the WI but for many, Townswomen’s Guilds are not something that they are familiar with.
However, Townswomen’s Guilds have been established since 1929 and have over 35,000 members from around the country.
We meet regularly, regardless of politics, race, age, religion or circumstances.
We exchange ideas and views, develop new skills, campaign on various issues – but most of all we enjoy ourselves, make new friends and support each other.
You are never alone with nothing to do once you have joined the Townswomen’s Guild.
In addition to the regular meetings, you can become involved in our national events with conferences on a wide range of subjects, art and craft workshops and a variety of sport and leisure activities that are held around the country.
Our quarterly magazine Townswoman! gives additional information on past and future events that are being arranged.
Your local group, Fareham West Townswomen’s Guild, meets on the third Wednesday of each month in St John’s Church Hall, St Michael’s Grove, Fareham at 2.15pm.
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, January 16 when our speaker is Ms P Edwards talking about The Hermitage Wild Life.
We hold coffee mornings, arrange outings and various events. We also have art, craft, gardening, singing and scrabble groups.
Visitors are very welcome and we would love to hear from anybody who would like to join us. It really is a great group.
