100th Anniversary.

Yoxall W.I. is 100 years old this year.

A variety of activities had been planned throughout the year but due to the Coronavirus, sadly these have had to be postponed.

 

All meetings up to and including November 2020 have been cancelled.


This poem was written during our formation year we do not know who wrote it or when.
W.I.Y.S.
You ask me what this stands for
I ask you what you hear,
Each letter has its meaning,
What is it strikes the ear?
The first of course is Women, The second Institute,
The third must stand for Yoxall, The fourth do you dispute?
The S it shows our county, Reminding that we stand, Supported by our comrades, With Staffs held firm in hand.
We need the S as finish, For why? It makes us WIYS, And wise let every member be, As much as in her lies.
