Great Longstone Community Website

Wednesday, February 26


Gt Longstone WI meets on the first Wednesday of each month (except for January and August) in the Village Hall in Great Longstone. Our meetings start at 7.30pm  with some business and then we are generally entertained by a speaker on a variety of topics or a demonstration. There is time after the talk for a cup of tea/coffee, a look at the trading stall, a vote for your favourite competition entry or a chat with other members.

During 2018, we met with other WIs at Group Meetings and Council Meetings we organised a Sales Stall in Bakewell, enjoyed several meals out and various other outings.  Members of the Walking Group met to enjoy rambles in the hills and dales.  In the Summer several members exhibited crafts, flowers and cookery at the Bakewell Event.
