Scottish Women’s Rural Institutes is one of the largest women’s organisations in Scotland and boasts about 22,000 members. Members informally call the organisation the “Rural”. There are lots of opportunities to get involved in SWRI: attend classes in crafts, go to cookery demonstrations, go to summer school, join a drama group, sing in a choir, take part in sport, go on a study tour at home or abroad, debate local issues, organise events or simply enjoy the friendship of fellow members at the monthly meeting. The SWRI Angus Federation has 39 Institutes within it offering a great variety of activities as well as regular meetings.
Newtyle and District WRI meets in the Wharncliffe Hall (corner of Castle and Church Street) on the 2nd Thursday of the month.
