Stowupland's Women's Institute
Our W’I began in 1939 and for several years was known as Stowupland and Creeting St.Peter WI . The main purpose for the WI was ‘to improve and develop conditions of the poor’.
In 2021 local women took the decision that they wanted to terminate their affiliation to the National Federation of WI . Locally the general feeling was that NFWI had done little to support our group through Covid-19 and it was ill advised in expecting members to pay their normal annual subscriptions.
On September 9th 2021 former members of Stowupland WI gathered together for the first meeting of a new women’s group Stowupland’s ‘Ladybirds’ for support and discussion.
