Welcome to the Arnside and Arnside Knott WI website.


Come and join us for our monthly meetings when, as well as socialising and discussing WI matters,  we have speakers on interesting and varied subjects, appealing to all age groups.

Being a member of the WI can offer friendship and fun, opportunities to learn new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to have a voice in  campaigns on local, national and international issues that matter to you and your community. 

Meetings take place on the second Monday of the month, at 2 pm, in the Arnside WI and Village Hall. There is a small charge of £3 (which includes refreshments) for non-members and visitors.

As well as the monthly meetings we offer a range of other social activities:- coach trips, cinema and theatre visits, coffee mornings, evening social events, dining out, craft and cooking activities, fund raising events and more.

At most meetings members can take part in a fund raising competition. Bring along up to 3 items relating the talk - (Details on programme) which are put on display. Members can choose their favourites by placing coins by them. Over the year the person who has the most popular items wins an award. The funds raised this way got to Pennies for Friendship to support The Associated Country Women of the World (ACWW)

We are affiliated to the National Federation of Women’s Institutes  and the Cumbria-Westmorland Federation. The CWFWI organises classes and social events at their offices in Kendal, together with regular monthly groups for creative writers, embroiderers and painters. They also run tutor-led sessions for many other skills such as cookery and computing.

The CWFWI has a marquee at the annual Westmorland County Agricultural Show (held each year on the second Thursday in September) at the Show Ground at Crooklands. We usually take part in this and have often been very successful.So, if you are new to the area or just fancy giving the WI a try, come along and spend an enjoyable afternoon with us. It's a wonderful way to make new friends. We look forward to meeting you.
