At each meeting we have a talk or a demonstration followed by social time which might include a quiz, cheese and wine or a workshop. We try to cover throughout the year a variety of interests with our choice of speakers. Our annual programme also includes events such as coffee mornings, a summer outing, a garden party and a Christmas lunch.

Members of our Institute also organise a walking group, an art group, and a weekly Sunday coffee club.  Before the pandemic there was a craft group as well as trips to the theatre and live screenings. It is hoped to be able to organise such things again.

In addition there are opportunities to join a wide range of events organised by the Oxfordshire Federation.

We are pleased to welcome visitors. If you are thinking of joining the Women’s Institute. why not come along to a meeting? Either turn up on the night or to get in touch through our CONTACT US page.
