About Tilly Widgets Farnborough WI

Tilly Widgets WI first met on 14th May 2014. They are named after local Farnborough aeronautical engineer Beatrice (Tilly) Shilling, an inspiring woman who invented a widget which would prevent the Rolls Royce Merlin engine in fighter planes in WWII from being flooded with fuel and stalling whilst performing dive bombing type manoeuvres. Today the WI plays a unique role in enabling women to gain new skills, take part in wide-ranging activities and campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities. The WI is a diverse organisation open to all women. The National Federation of Women’s Institute (NFWI) is divided into 69 federations. Tilly Widgets is part of Hampshire Federation (HCFWI).
