As you will see, we have a varied programme of speakers and events – something for everyone.

We are a friendly group who are always pleased to welcome ladies visiting the area or, if you live locally, why not come along to a few meetings with a view to becoming a member yourself. At most meetings we have a Speaker and after their talk we have a break for a cup of tea/coffee and biscuits, and sometimes a short quiz or catch up on local news. We also have our popular Winter Warming Lunch in October and everyone is invited to come along. All our events are printed in the Kennington Chronicle.

More information about our Institute is available by telephoning (01235) 530357 or just come along one evening. You can be assured of a warm welcome.
