Meeting on the 3rd Monday of each month at 7.30pm.

Watch this space for further information about the coming year

We were formed in October 2010 with around ten members. This number has fluctuated a little and finished 2011 with about fifteen members, now in 2016 we have 45 members and more people joining each month. We would best be described as a mixed group of ladies with a variety of interests ranging from the traditional WI crafts of cooking, embroidery and jam making through to motor bikes, both vintage and modern, languages – including modern Greek – heritage, wild life and woodland preservation. The common link is an active interest in life in general and women’s interests in particular. We are an interesting and welcoming group with ages ranging from 35 to 94. We hope you will find us to be happy and welcoming friends.

We meet once a month on the 3rd Monday (with the exception of August and December). We have a full programme of speakers for the forthcoming year, details of which can be found on our ‘Calendar of Events’. In addition we have a lunch club, craft group and a walking group all meeting monthly. An evening meal is arranged for those of us who work bimonthly.We also arrange one or two trips to the theatre or places of interest during the year (members suggestions welcome). So far we have had an enjoyable tour of the fashion department at Worthing Museum, a backstage Tour of Worthing theatre and a trip to Petworth Cottages museum. Our next theatre trip is to see The Bletchley Girls in September.

We also have a Facebook page – Women’s Institute Worthing. Please visit for the latest news, tips and information.

We are actively supported by the West Sussex Federation of Women’s Institutes who in turn arrange many fun and educational days. These include the traditional WI crafts, games of all sorts, political debate and self-improvement, public speaking, singing and more. In fact, if you want it they will arrange it.
