History
The first meeting of the WI in Snitterfield was held in the village hall on 24th May 1933. 36 members attended, the first president was Mrs Hawkesworth and the members paid 1d for their cup of tea after the meeting. The topics discussed at the time reflected the needs of the women in the community so dress making, fruit bottling, poultry keeping and home nursing were featured.
During World War 2 our WI ladies had a jam making centre, a war sewing group and collected money for the Red Cross.
Drama also became a permanent part for the Snitterfield members and in 1936 our WI came 2nd by 1 mark to Kineton in the Warwickshire competition. Curtains for the hall were purchased from the proceeds of many dramatic productions.
The present WI is still involved with crafts and there is still a demand for our cakes and jams as demonstrated this year at the fete. Topics now discussed reflect both the busy lives of women and the increase in leisure activities.
We welcome women of all ages however the tea now is 50p but does include cake.
Beyond our local meeting there is a wealth of activities organised by the county federation based in Warwick which offers literature craft and social activities in line with the original aims of the WI.
