Chideock WI was founded in 1919, just after the end of the First World War, and we celebrated our Centenary in 2019.  We are a thriving, lively group of ladies and we meet regularly in Chideock Village Hall on the first Tuesday of the month at 2.00 pm.

When Chideock WI was first formed it encouraged women to become more involved in producing food to feed their families and taught them new skills.  During meetings members entertained each other with poetry readings, singalongs and dancing.  100 years on we still teach our members new skills but we have a far wider range of speakers and entertainers and we have a number of special interest groups who meet between meetings.  To find out more please go to About.

Chideock WI is a registered charity - No 1189087.
