ABBOTSLEY WOMEN’S INSTITUTE
 
Abbotsley WI has more than 20 members and meets
 on the second Wednesday of each month in the village hall at 7.30 pm.
 
New members are always welcome to join us. Indeed, we now include members from the nearby villages of Great Gransden and Gamlingay as well as from St Neots. 
 
Our monthly meetings usually consist of a speaker or activity followed by refreshments and a chance to talk to fellow members. 
Abbotsley W.I. also arranges outings and fund raising events throughout the year.  Our members regularly attend events organized by the Federation, such as quizzes, talks & outings.  We also organise a number of fund raising events and support the village, for example by providing teas during feast week and breakfast during the annual local half marathon.
