The Overstrand Evening Women's Institute was founded in 1983. We currently have twenty members and meet on the third Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm in the Parish Hall, The Londs, Overstrand.
Most meetings feature a guest speaker and there is often a demonstration, slide show or entertainment of some kind. Each month we have a competition with members bringing in items of interest pertaining to a preset letter of the alphabet plus there is a raffle to help our funds. After the speaker, refreshments are available and members have a chance to chat. We pride ourselves on offering a warm welcome to members and visitors.
During the year we arrange additional activities. In 2018 we visited Sandringham, went to the theatre, joined the Noreaster group plus we had our usual stall at the village Car Boot Sale. Our auction in May proved a successful fund raising event. In June, we joined forces with Seal & Shore Watch, clearing plastics and other debris from our beach. We have enjoyed walks around Erpingham (raising funds for ACWW) and Southrepps Common and welcomed members of Erpingham with Calthorpe WI for a guided walk round the village.
For information about our 2019 meetings and walks, see the Calendar page.
The W.I. is a vibrant organisation, open to women of all ages. It has been a driving force in many UK wide campaigns with its slogan "Inspiring Women" ringing true.
