Ely WI


Forty is the only number in English whose letters appear in alphabetical order.

Forty is the number of spaces on a standard Monopoly Board.

Forty is the highest number ever counted to on Sesame Street.

Forty years ago (back in 1984) Ghostbusters was the number one film, Band Aid raised significant funds for famine relief and a litre of petrol was only 35p! What a year to remember. On top of all of the above events, Ely City WI (ECWI) was established.

Members have been busy marking the occasion with nothing less than one of their bright and colourful craft bombs. One of the iconic displays can be seen outside Sessions House in Lynn Road with a more detailed pictorial exhibit being hosted at Ely Library.

A spokesperson said “we are really excited to be marking our anniversary in the Town. Our membership is going from strength to strength and, as the largest voluntary women’s organisation in the country; the WI is definitely something to be proud of. Over the coming months we will be marking our Ruby Anniversary and look forward to reminiscing with old friends and welcoming new ones”.

ECWI have a full and varied programme and is open to women over the age of 18 from all walks of life. As a member you will have access to 11 main meetings a year, all of the sub-groups, our private social media groups and 8 copies of the WI magazine ‘WI Life’ per year.

We meet at Bishop Laney Sixth Form, Downham Road, CB6 2SH on the second Monday of each month, starting at 7.00pm until approximately 9.00pm. The next open meeting will be on 8th July 2024.

We are. We can. We do.
