To find out more about Bleasby WI, please visit our website at where there is up to date information about meetings, events and outings. 

The first meeting of Bleasby WI was held on 19 October 1922 in the nursery or playroom of Bleasby Hall, then the home of the Kelham family. The format of the meeting then would have been very similar to today starting with information on trips and events both in Bleasby and the county, a speaker followed by social time and a lot of chatter.

From the early days the WI provided an environment where women, whose life then was very different and hard for many, could have fun and form friendships; it provided an outlet where, with a network of friends, they could learn something new. These same values attract our members today.
