The First WI in Britain - AFWI

LLANFAIRPWLLGWYNGYLL - The First in Britain - 1915

Mrs Alfred Watt
The Anglesey village of Llanfairpwllgwyngyll is world famous for having Britain's longest place name, but far less well know is the fact that it can boast to be the place where the very first Women's institute in Britain was founded.

The Movement itself was started in Canada in 1897.  In 1913 a lady called Mrs Alfred Watt, who had worked at the WI headquarters in Canada came over to work in London and tried, without success, to start WI's in the south of England.
