Hanney Womens Institute

Welcome to Hanney W.I.

Womens Institute LogoThe W.I. is the largest voluntary women's organisation in the U.K. The W.I. exists to educate women to enable them to provide an effective role in the community, to widen their horizons and to develop and pass on important skills.

Hanney W.I. is part of the Oxfordshire Federation of Women's Institutes, which belongs to the National Federation. We have 11 meetings a year.

The main part of the evening is a talk or demonstration by a guest speaker. In addition there will be some brief W.I. business, future events, visits and further trips and activities.

In addition there are a variety of opportunities for members organised by both the Oxfordshire Federation and National Federation.
