Beckermet WI

Beckermet is a small and friendly WI which meets in a pleasant location with ample parking on the road outside or in the village car park. We enjoy a varied programme of speakers, outings and activities and have a monthly competition for which there are points awarded and a Cup at the end of the year. Members are invited to suggest speakers for the programme and every effort is made to accommodate this. Our soup lunches are popular and we are a welcome presence at village events. We provide refreshments for the local Farmers’ Market and embrace the activities of the Federation. A warm welcome awaits new members and visitors.
