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.

Please contact Denise Ball – 01869 343364 if you are interested in coming along and meeting us, you will be made most welcome – please come along, you may wish to join.
