Westleton Women's Institute
Westleton Women's Institute was formed in 1918. Until its demolition in 1968, monthly Institute meetings were held in a former army hut on The Street, and are now held in the Village Hall.
The Institute continues to organise social and educational activities in the spirit of its founding principles and continues to provide assistance to those in need.
The Institute meets at 7 30 pm in the Village Hall on the first Tuesday of every month except January and July (see programme below). It is a very friendly organisation and gives a warm welcome to visitors, guests and prospective new members.
