In Cornwall there are about 170 Women's Institutes (WIs), with almost 4,500 members, representing a lot of talent, a strong voice, and a great opportunity for friendship, education and mutual support.
That talent shows in the well-supported competitions and the prestigious Royal Cornwall Cup is presented to the winning WI on the first day.
Education, socialising and friendship are key WI aims. You can browse around the competition entries, publications and craft work and meet some of the members.
