      The Allerton Womens' Institute
Now & Then

Allerton Women’s Institute was founded in 1949 and is part of the National Federation of  Women’s Institutes.

Allerton WI is an active group at the heart of our community and we extend a warm welcome to anyone to come along to one of our meetings to see what we do and how much fun we have.

We are a friendly and enthusiastic group of women of all ages who meet at 7.30pm on the 2nd Tuesday of each month in the Old Schoolroom at Stone Allerton.  The meetings are open to everyone irrespective of age or gender!!  During the year we also arrange some trip to places of interest; the last being to the Bristol Blue Glass factory which was fascinating.

Calling all Birders: Great Crane Project


craneSmSomerset WIs have learned of a plan to reintroduce the great crane, absent for 400 years, to the Somerset Levels next Autumn.  The Levels and Moors provide just the right habitat, mild climate and rich in insect life.

Chicks will be bred at Slimbridge next spring, where you will be able to see them next summer.  The RSPB will need help to monitor the young cranes.


Anyone interested in assisting with monitoring and who can talk to the public about the project should contact :-

Damon Bridge – Project Manager
