A meeting will be held this week to try and set up a new Women’s Institute for the Trewern area.

It will take place at the Buttington Trewern Community Centre at 7.30pm on Tuesday with the aim of setting up Montgomeryshire’s 41st WI.

“All ladies will be most welcome to come along and be in at the start of this new venture,” said Jean Hurrell, Powys Montgomery Chairman. “Come and help to make the WI what you'd like it to be.”

Meanwhile, on April 17, Powys Montgomery will host the Federations of Wales' Conference at Cefn Lea, Dolfor.

Up to 500 WI members from across Wales will listen to speakers including Tori James, who at the age of 25, became the youngest British woman (at that time) and the first Welsh woman to climb to the summit of Mount Everest.

Gary Ball of History Matters & Project Zero will talk about the role of women in the building of airships in WWI and Mary Oldham of Gregynog on the subject of the Davies sisters.

“We will also hear about the Natural Heritage Tree Project which will engage WI members from across Wales as champions of trees in their local communities,” Jean added.
