Box WI opened in 1960 with 17 members. It closed after 24 years in 1984 and reopened 6 years later in 1990 and is still active today.
WI is not just about Jam and Jerusalem! The aim of the organisation is to provide educational opportunities, to encourage everyone to work together for the benefit of the community, to promote friendship and fellowship and to have fun! We do just this in Box.
So do come along to one of our meetings, which are held at 10am on the second Tuesday of each month (except August) where you will receive a very warm welcome.
