ARK ANGELS - Second Monday of the month at The Ark

Ark Angels WI meets in the Ark at St Laurence Church, Alvechurch, after moving from Alvechurch Library where it was originally founded in September 2010 under the name of Bookends Late Edition.

The branch has a youthful and vibrant approach while upholding the core values of the WI – it boasts a wide age range and welcomes all who are seeking to try a fresh and modern WI.

Previous events have including a Zumba exercise class, taster sessions of Tai Chi and Flamenco dancing, a Bottle and Board Game night, tips on researching family history, and a fundraising night in aid of St Basil’s, a local charity which supports young homeless adults.

The group is always looking for new members, so If this sounds like something you might be interested in, the ladies would be very happy to welcome you as a guest for an evening. Ark Angels WI meets on the second Monday every month, usually at the Ark at 7.30pm.

For more information, find the group on Facebook or email Fiona Phillips at

We also have the separate HILLSIDE W.I. here at The Ark meeting at 7.30pm on the first Wednesday of the month.

For more information or to book the Ark yourself please call -
