The Nunney & District branch of the Somerset County Federation of Women’s Institutes meets on the Thursday of every 3rd week of the month in Trudoxhill Village Hall from 7.30pm.

The Women’s Institute (WI) was formed in 1915 to revitalise rural communities and to encourage women to become more involved in producing food during the First World War.

Since then the organisation’s aims have broadened and the WI is now the largest voluntary women’s organisation in the UK. The WI will celebrate its centenary in 2015 and currently has over 210,000 members in around 6,600 WIs.

The WI plays a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.

There are currently 11 WIs in the Frome and Radstock area, including Nunney & District, Frome, Chewton Mendip, Buckland Dinham, Beckington, Berkley & Standerwick, Upton Noble, Witham Friary, Kilmersdon, Leigh-on-Mendip, Batcombe, Binegar and Hemington. Frome WI was restarted in 2012.
