Broom WI

Broom Women's Institute

Broom Women's Institute meets on the first Thursday of the month at the Village Hall at 7.30pm.

We are an active and friendly group that enjoys various events during the year.

2018 was the Centenary Year of Warwickshire Federation of Women’s Institutes. Many special events were held during the year. Several of our members went on the ‘Big Day Out’ to Lincoln attended by over 900 members of Warwickshire WIs. The singing of Jerusalem in Lincoln Cathedral was an unforgettable experience and something many of us will never forget.

In November we attended the Centenary Service at St Mary’s, Warwick and had the opportunity to see the church decorated with thousands of handmade poppies to commemorate 100 years since the end of WW1. The WI had a special display of poppies and several of our members had made poppies for the display.

Our members as usual have joined many of the outings arranged by the Federation as well as our own events. We arranged an Afternoon tea at Hillers Garden Cafe, a Garden visit to Morton Hall near Inkberrow and croquet in a member’s garden plus the usual variety of excellent speakers at our monthly meetings.

We were twinned with Ullenhall WI for the centenary year. They visited us in May when we had an indoor curling contest (they narrowly won!). In November we headed over to Ullenhall for a Christmas quiz and buffet. We also visited our other WI friends at nearby Luddington in October.

In December we had our usual workshop making Christmas cards, crackers and wrapping a bottle and went to the Wheelbarrow Castle near Inkberrow for our annual meal. 2018 was a very busy year for Broom WI!

Our President or our Secretary would be only too pleased to answer any queries you may have. We would be delighted to hear from you.

We always conclude our friendly meeting with refreshments, which of course includes plenty of tea and cake!
