About Us


Scarcroft is a long established WI and celebrated its 95th birthday in March 2018.  We endeavour to keep the traditions of the Women's Institute, but try to make sure we are up to date and relevant to the women involved.


Sadly, Scarcroft doesn’t have a post office, shop, school or church where people living in the area can bump into each other… Fortunately, we do have a Village Hall with excellent facilities.  The Village Hall events are therefore great opportunities to meet and get to know people.


Our monthly meetings include demonstrations, talks on a variety of subjects and interactive events.  There is always time for a chat over a cup of tea, glass of wine or both!


Please see our ‘What’s On’ page for events planned during 2019.


The group always welcome suggestions and requests for specific events from members.


A year's membership to the WI costs £42 in 2019 (pro rated if you join during the year for new/first time members).
