Uckfield WI, affectionately known as the Uckfield Belles, was set up following a hugely popular exploratory meeting in February 2016, with our first official meeting in March the same year.
We are a modern WI with lots of fun events planned and plenty of burgeoning sub-groups too from craft groups, book club, walking through to supper club at local restaurants and cafes. We meet on the first Thursday of every month (apart from January which will be held on the 10th) from 7.30pm until 9.30pm at the Luxford Centre in Uckfield to enjoy various activities and speakers.
Membership for 2019 is open, we welcome guests to come along and see what we get up to, if you are interested in becoming a member please complete the application form or email for more information.
From the outset we wanted to be active in the community, we support local events from the Holy Cross Festival of Trees, Uckfield Late night shopping events and Remembrance Day service. In addition we wanted to help a local charity, raising money throughout the year with different events.
Our members chose Demelza, the charity supports families whose children have a serious or terminal condition, Demelza provides specialist care and support, throughout East Sussex and Kent.
So far Uckfield WI Belles have raised nearly £5000 and will continue its partnership with the charity.
