Tickenham Women’s Institute

Tickenham WI Header

Tickenham WI is a friendly group of ladies of all ages.  It has about 40 members who live in Tickenham and the surrounding area including Portishead, Nailsea and Clevedon.  Tickenham WI meets in the Village Hall on the 2nd Tuesday in the month at 2.15pm.

Tickenham WI has an active calendar of monthly meetings, outings and attending events.  Our recent outings have included going to the Royal Mint, near Cardiff; having a boat trip from Exmouth and visiting Topsham.  We’ve also been to Lacock village and Abbey – the home of our new Queen.

Many groups join together to form Federations.  These are geographical areas, similar to counties.  The Yeo Valley Group is part of Avon Federation, which covers an area of North Somerset, Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol and South Gloucestershire.  Avon Federation also arranges events such as John Lewis Christmas Shopping Event, a trip to Hinkley Point Power Station, and excursions such as going on the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Steam Railway followed by a cream tea.

In turn, all the Federations are part of the National Federation of Women’s Institutes.
