Warborough and Shillingford WI 

Warborough & Shillingford Women’s Institute is over 100 years old, having been formed in February 1922 with the same aims as now, which are to offer women of all generations a friendly environment in which to come together to learn, share skills and work together to make a difference in their community.  Now the largest women’s organisation in the UK, the WI campaigns nationally on a wide range of issues and provides life-long learning and self-development opportunities for women in England and Wales.

We hold our Members’ Meeting on the second Wednesday of every month in St. Lawrence Hall, Warborough at 7:15 pm for a 7:30 pm start. The meeting comprises either a speaker, an activity or a visit. We also arrange additional walks, outings & visits in between our meetings.

Our Community Projects to improve our surroundings have included the introduction of the WI car service to the local doctor’s surgery, established in 1966, and which continues today. More recently, we have successfully applied for funding for a new bus shelter in Shillingford and planted hundreds of bulbs along the main road. We also support local groups like the Women’s Refuge, Oxford Food Hub & the Berin Centre with charitable donations.

WI Membership entitles you to free entry to 11 meetings, 8 copies of WI Life Magazine, exclusive access to My WI website and access to a wealth of activities and opportunities offered by the Oxfordshire Federation and the National Federation, including accredited courses run by the Learning Hub.

Would you like to join us? You would be most welcome. The more of us there are the more we can do, so please contact either Sarah Allan (President) or Vicky Hart (Secretary) on warboroughwi@oxfordshirewi.co.uk if you are interested.

Why not come and have a chat over a cup of coffee?

We hope to hear from you.
