Renowned for offering a warm welcome and our excellent teas, rather than for in-depth discussion on chutneys and tatting, Kirton and Falkenham WI is a lively group of friendly women from the two villages and surrounding area. We enjoy getting together, learning about something new and having a bit of fun. Various outings and visits are arranged throughout the year and we also welcome the opportunity to take part in group and federation events. Feel free to give us a try!
