Somersham WI is a recently formed WI in the east of Ipswich. We have our meetings on the third Monday of the month and try to make sure all our our speakers throughout the year fit our motto of ‘create, learn, inspire’.
We have a huge age range in our members, and guests and new members are always welcome to join us. We like to join in with local events and fundraising, and have members from our surrounding villages and Ipswich.
Founded in 2016, Somersham WI has around 20 members. Meetings are normally held on the 3rd Monday of each month at Somersham Village Hall, Main Rd, Lower Somersham, starting at 7.30pm. Visitors and new members are always welcome.
