Inspiring Women

Welcome to the Putney WI

Are you looking to make friends and learn something new?


I was, and that's why I set about starting a WI group in Putney - as a place where likeminded women could gather to network, share experiences, and just have fun!


Our first meeting was in March 2012, where we formed the 10-strong Putney WI committee and from there we've grown into the thriving and buzzing network of inspirational women that we are today.


Every month sees us host a thought-provoking speaker or get creative with a hands-on workshop and we're also in the process of launching a series of supper, book, and walking clubs.


That's the best bit of the Putney WI - the group can be whatever you want.
