Stroud Evening WI was formed in 1983 and originally met in the old Stroud Village Hall, known locally as The Tin Hut, which was demolished in 2010.  Stroud Evening WI then found a base in Bedales School, before eventually moving to a new home in the recently built Stroud Village Hall in August 2021. A great new start as we came out of the Covid Pandemic lockdowns.

We enjoy a wide range of speakers in line with the WI Vision of creating a world where women come together to learn, share skills and work together to become active citizens, influencing change to improve lives in their local, national and global communities. During the pandemic we had zoom meetings whereby members could keep in touch with each other.  Past Speakers’ subjects have covered such diverse topics a Freemasonary, Flamenco Dancing and the Secrets of a Herbalist’s Garden.

We take part in the NFWI resolutions process by debating and voting on a shortlist of resolutions put forward by other WIs.  One of the resolutions will go forward to the NFWI Annual Meeting and, if adopted, will form the basis of a WI Campaign.

Our members attend the NFWI Annual Meeting and the Hampshire Federation Spring and Autumn Council meetings. We  award two bursaries a year which members can use for educational purposes.

We provide refreshments in June and November for the Petersfield Orchestra concerts as well as various community events.
