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.

Meetings at Box Village Hall are held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, 10am business, coffee at 10.30am followed by a speaker.  Visitors are warmly welcomed at 10.30am – £3 including coffee.
