Thornford Women's Institute

Thornford W.I. offers support, friendship and learning opportunities for all its members. We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month (except August ) at 7.30 pm in the Village Hall. We have optional groups including a lunch club, book group, craft group, walking group and summer strollers. We aim to make sure there is something for everyone. Our latest venture has been the creation of an interactive bee cafe in the local allotments to help get Dorset buzzing, and much fun has been had by the craft group, working together, to make a scarecrow. 


The Dorset Federation of Women's Institutes offer all sorts of opportunities for activities such as paddle boarding and zip wiring alongside traditional pursuits, and contrary to popular belief members are from all age groups.
