Thriving community group for women has new meeting venue

Morpeth Town WI

This new WI group – it was formed in April – is already proving popular.

More than 20 women from the Morpeth area have become members and the venue for meetings is now Austin House in Sanderson Arcade.

Club President Sarah Scarlett said: “We have worked hard to create an interesting programme of speakers and the WI has lots of activities that members can participate in both locally and regionally.

“For some members, it has been an opportunity to catch up with old friends and form new friendships, for others it’s a route to learning new skills and for some the campaigning aspect of the organisation is an important aspect of joining the WI.

“Ladies who are interested in finding out more about the WI are welcome to come along to any of our meetings.”

Morpeth Town WI meetings take place on the second Monday of the month from 7.30pm – the next one is this Monday (October 13). The meeting room is located on the first floor of Austin House.
