The Institute meets on the second Monday of each month except for July and August as these are traditionally the months during which the majority of people of Northern Ireland take their main holiday. 

In addition to the competition in the programme we also award small prizes for "the birthday girl" and occasionally have a raffle. We also raise funds for a number of selected charities.

The Diary Page also lists other events of interest to members in addition to details of our monthly meetings.  Click here to see the list of events arranged by the Federation of Women's Institutes of Northern Ireland.
