The Women’s Institute/WI


Welcome to The Heyfords’ WI

Thinking of joining us?

What you can expect..? First of all, no one is going to quiz you on whether you have a favourite recipe for a sponge cake, or whether you can bake.

We are a friendly group, who will offer friendship and support and you too will have the opportunity to join in as much or as little as you decide.

We meet on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm in The Reading Room, School Lane, Upper Heyford, OX25 5LG

Our meetings start with a short business session to report on WI issues and events in Oxfordshire and on the national scene. This is usually followed by a talk or demonstration with plenty of social time, to be able to catch up and have a tea or coffee with cake or biscuits.

You are more than welcome to come along and see what we are like… give me a call, what have you got to loose..? Hopefully a lot to gain!
