The Overstrand W.I. meet on the third Wednesday of each month at 2.30 p.m. in the Parish Hall, The Londs, Overstrand.

The W.I. is a vibrant organisation, open to women of all ages.  It has been a driving force in many UK wide campaigns with its slogan "Inspiring Women" ringing true.


100 Cakes for Rockstock

on Norfolk Day

Most meetings feature a guest speaker and there is often a demonstration, slide show or entertainment of some kind.  We also have a competition with members bringing in items of interest pertaining to a preset letter of the alphabet, plus there is a raffle to help our funds.  We now have a sales table at our meetings, where members can bring unwanted items to sell.  After the speaker, refreshments are available and members have a chance to chat.  We pride ourselves on offering a warm welcome to members and visitors. During the year we arrange additional activities.  Alas, in 2020 and part of 2021 our activities have been limited, however in 2019 we enjoyed a river cruise in June from Horning on the Southern Comfort, Mississippi Paddle Boat.  In July we baked 100 cakes for Norfolk Day, these were given away and well received by the audience at Overstrand's music event, Rockstock.  In November, members donated various foods which were later taken to our local Food Bank.  Our Christmas Lunch, held in the Amber Restaurant at the Cromer Country Club, proved to be extremely enjoyable, starting with Nancy reading her annual poem, and rounded off with our traditional Secret Santa.
