The WI in Capel began in 1923 originally but after a closure for a while it re-opened again I988 and has gone from
strength to strength. To date we have 40 members. Each month we have a different guest speaker and the talks are very interesting and on most occasions very humerous. Between meetings we enjoy visits to theatres, cinemas, National Trust Houses, walks and at Christmas have a fabulous Christmas Party.

Our age range is 18 and over.

We meet at the Capel Memorial Hall.

We meet on every third Tuesday at 7.45-10.00 pm
