We enjoy being part of the wider WI experience from making jam to major political statements and affecting public opinion.
Most meetings are held in Kirk Hammerton – but around 3 times a year Green Hammerton Village Hall is used.
Membership is £41 per annum – with occasional guests being charged £4 each visit.
New members are very welcome – please contact Gill Blacker (details below) for more information.

Our November meeting included our AGM. Ann Johnson stepped down as President after her 3 year term of office expired and she also came off committee. Sue Bowe has taken over as President for the coming year. After the official procedures were carried out the presentation of trophies and prizes commenced. Carol Wake received the Dorothy Lumley Cup for her kindness and assistance throughout the year and the competition that runs through the year was won by Sheila Hornby with Christine Bonnett and Gillian Mayes in joint second place. The evening concluded with a quiz organised by Christine, a little bit different, but enjoyable and fun. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 12th December at Kirk Hammerton Village Hall starting at 7. 30 pm when Bob Hirst will talk about Bees and demonstrate how to make beeswax candles, the competition is something unusual beginning with the letter J. Perhaps I will just present myself!.
All welcome to join us.
Ann Johnson Ex President.

Some pictures of us having fun
If you’ve time, come cast an eye
over Kirk & Green Hammerton WI
There’s visits. trips & days out galore
Competitions, anniversaries and events by the score
So take a trip with us on days rainy & sunny
to events and attractions both serious & funny
If you’re not a member then do come along
and please don’t be put off by our song
Jerusalem’s our tradition, we sing it each time
some good, some ‘not so’ – it turns out just fine
Not just Jam & Jerusalem as some folk would think
Nor women with no clothes on, hid by a sink
But interesting talks and hands on too
and the hand of friendship – held out to you.
