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 dinner.
Members of our group also organise a monthly lunch club, a keep fit class, a drama group, monthly walks and cycle rides.
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 W.I. why not come along to a meeting? Either turn up on the night or to get in touch please click on our CONTACT US page.
