Swaffham Prior Womens Institute

The Swaffhams WI was formed in January 2010 by the merging of Swaffham Prior and Swaffham Bulbeck WIs. The WI is part of the Cambridge Federation of WIs which has its office in Girton. It is one of the 69 regional federations which together make up the National Federation; for more information see www.thewi.org. The Swaffhams WI have a full programme of meetings throughout the year, most of which are held in Swaffham Prior Village Hall on the third Monday of the Month at 7.30 pm. Other frequent events and outings are arranged by the federation for the benefit off all the WIs in the region.

The WI have produced a history of Swaffham Prior which can be downloaded for free or viewed online (48 Mb).
