Penge now has its own WI, Palace and Penge WI is the newest Women’s Institute in the South East of London, and we are looking for new members!

Palace and Penge WI, is the newest Women’s Institute in the South East of London. Running for only a few months, already we have had activity filled sessions, making cake pops, decorating t-shirts and designing mugs and at our last meeting we learnt all about bees.

Meeting at Anerley Town Hall on the 1st Tuesday of each month, newcomers are always welcome; and the welcome always includes cake, a cup of tea and maybe a glass of wine.

The Women’s Institute was formed in 1915, its aim to revitalise rural communities and while we don’t claim to be revitalising Crystal Palace and Penge, we are all passionate about where we live and aim to make a positive difference to it – be that one cup cake at a time! And we are not alone; the WI is now the largest voluntary women’s organisation in the UK, playing 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.

If this sounds interesting, then new members who want to join us can not come along to our next meeting. To find out more email palaceandpengewi@hotmail.co.uk or visit our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter…you see it’s not all Jam and Jerusalem.
