Trowell WI

The Women’s Institute offers women the opportunity of sharing friendship and learning, to help widen their horizons and together influence local, national and international affairs.

Trowell W I  is an active, flourishing and welcoming group, with a broad range of ages, backgrounds and interests.  We meet on the third Tuesday of the month (except August) from 7.30pm. We normally have a guest to entertain us and all meetings except the Christmas and Birthday Parties are open to visitors.  

We also have Ladies Darts Social Evenings with other WIs and friends from the area.  Everyone can have a game and we all enjoy the fun, whether we can hit the board or not. These are on Wednesdays, usually 2nd in the month, in the Trowell Church Hall on Nottingham Rd from 7.30pm. All pay £2.50 which includes tea/coffee/biscuits.

Ladies – do give us a try as a visitor. Come along to one of our or meetings or events. Have some fun and see what we do. Our members have an active social life, with outings, mystery trips, visits to the theatre, meals out, a Craft group,  taking part in other activities in the village such as weekly rambles,  keep fit and indoor bowls, badminton, Ladies Choir.  And we help to entertain the village with dances, concerts and other events.   We are part of Nottinghamshire Federation of WIs, take part in many activities and events organised by them, and are now on Facebook.

We aren’t just Jam and Jerusalem – though we haven’t appeared on a calendar!   We have a lot of fun and want to share it.  Give us a try – we are very friendly and welcoming.  Come as a visitor or ring Pat Wilson (Hon. Sec.) on 0115 9287051 for more information.  We hope to see you soon!

Trowell (WI) Ladies Choir

The Choir was formed in 1970 and has always had non-WI members.  We are a very friendly, lively group of about 14 ladies who enjoy singing.  We entertain at local Care homes and some other events (sometimes WI) with a mix of light popular songs and the odd comedy sketch. 

We practise on Monday nights 7.45  to 9.15pm at the Church Hall, Nottingham Rd, Trowell from the first Monday in September to the middle of July.  We welcome any ladies who would like to come along to see what we do and think about joining us.  There are no auditions and it is not necessary to read music – you will probably know the songs anyway.

Ring Pat Wilson on 0115 9287051 if you would like more information, or to discuss how we can entertain you or your organisation.
