LADIES – Come and join us! All welcome 

Quainton WI generally meets on the third Thursday of each month (not in August), in Quainton Memorial Hall at 8pm. We are a very friendly group and visitors are always made most welcome at our meetings. The WI is enjoying an amazing boom with over 210,000 members nationwide. They have shaken off the frumpy `Jam & Jerusalem` image, the organisation has been rejuvenated and it is appealing for all ages. Membership – benefits of your local WI, access to county and national activities. Make an impact on local and national issues. An opportunity to learn, develop and pass on new skills. Belong to something special. Most of all have fun!

Annual subscription includes 8 issues of WI Life magazine for £39.00 (2017) due in January or £5 per visit for non members.  Come & join us. New members are always welcome.   Not sure if you want to join? Why not come as a visitor and try? 1st visit is free! You never know, you might find you like us!

Refreshments with cake are served at our meetings and there is a raffle.

For more information contact Ruth (Publicity) 655375 or email wi@quainton.info

No meeting is held in August.

Our next meeting at the hall is on Thursday 15th September at 8 p.m. in the Memorial Hall committee room.  Our speaker for the evening is Debbie Gibbs who will talk about Magistrates in the Community.
