Kesgrave WI is a warm friendly group who welcome visitors to join us to experience our meetings.
All members are greeted in the foyer of the community Centre by at least one of the committee.
During the year we aim to offer a variety or interesting speakers along with some ‘hands on’
meetings led either by a visiting tutor or by one of our talented members.
We generally invite our speakers to talk first. After our speaker we have a social time enabling
members to enjoy coffee and biscuits whilst catching up with each other and getting to know
new members and visitors.
The business section of our monthly meetings is led by our two presidents and other committee
We have a good link with other local WI’s, often visiting for meetings or supporting social events.
We do still sing Jerusalem at the end of our meetings as requested by our members.
