The Tedburn WI, which was formed in 1927, is an active group which gives local women of all ages the opportunity to make new friends, to learn new skills and to have a great time.
We meet once a month at the Village Hall, on the first Tuesday of the month, at 7.30pm.
There is usually a speaker, and always at least one or two friendly competitions. Details of our upcoming programme of meetings are listed below:

We also have a walking group which meets once a week in the Winter months, and twice a week in the Summer. Our walks are not too strenuous, but allow members the chance of getting some fresh air and exercise.
The WI also regularly provides refreshments at Village events, including the Fair, held each September.
We are active members of the Devon Federation of Women’s Institutes, and regularly hold events with other local groups, such as themed meals, trips to places of interest, skittles, darts and croquet.
We are more than just Jam and Jerusalem – why not come to one of our meetings and find out more about what we do!
