Frankwell Little Boro’ W.I.

About Us.


We are a friendly, diverse group of ladies

Frankwell Little Boro’ WI was founded in 2007 by a group of like minded women who thought it was about time we had a new WI in Shrewsbury!

Originally, the group met up in ‘The Bucks Head’ Frankwell but soon member numbers outgrew this location and in January 2008 and for the next 12 years we were based at The Darwin Community Centre in Frankwell.  We have recently relocated to our new and permanent location ‘Central’ on the first floor of the Shrewsbury Baptist Church, Claremont Street.  This is a lovely bright hall with excellent, modern facilities including a lift which we hope will enable us to welcome more members.

We are part of The Shrewsbury East Group – which consists of 5 WIs Acton Burnell, Cressage, Sundorne, Withington and of course Frankwell LB.

Currently we have around 35 members. We offer friendship, good company, guest speakers, crafting, entertainment, trips, events, competitions, raffles and lots of lively banter with a great atmosphere.

Our monthly meetings are much enjoyed by our members and visitors alike. We have a lot of fun together and enjoy taking part in many of the events on offer from Federation and Group Meetings.

In difficult times such as floods and more recently, the Pandemic, we have pulled up our sleeves and in true WI style, mucked in and supported each other and the local community.

Our aim is to continue to grow, develop better and stronger relationships and support one another.

WI Women have a ‘can and will do’ attitude and we look forward to welcoming you soon!
