Welcome to the Abbotswood (Romsey) WI page. We are a friendly, vibrant bunch of women who meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm at Abbotswood Community Centre, Abbotswood Common Road, Romsey, SO51 0BX.

Abbotswood Community Centre

As well as our monthly meetings, we have a range of regular groups, including a lunch group (3rd Wednesday), supper group (last Wednesday evening), craft workshops (3rd Tuesday evening), coffee morning group (last Thursday morning), book group (1st Wednesday afternoon), walking group, games group (last Friday evening) and theatre group (when events are on).

We also take part in the annual inter-WI skittles tournament and quiz, get involved with Hampshire WI events (such as WI Fest in 2018), plus work on entries for the WI Tent at the Romsey Show. So there’s lots to get involved with if you’d like to!

We’re pleased to be known as a friendly WI and we’re always happy to welcome visitors and new members. It’s free for visitors (a donation for tea/coffee and cake is welcome), and you can come along to three meetings for free before signing up to join us.

If you’d like any further details about meetings, please email – or message us via our Facebook Page.

We hope to see you soon!
