Yarnton has a thriving WI that is open to women of all ages. We meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month (except August) in the Village Hall at 7.30 pm and our activities cover a wide range of subjects both social and educational, and include occasional outings and visits. There is also the opportunity to join other WIs for talks and coach outings or to learn a new skill at the WI College in Marcham. Details of the next meeting are printed in the Village News and the full programme for 2015/16 is listed below. We have a lively membership and enjoy ourselves at meetings and at events in between, and we welcome visitors and new members. Do come and meet us!
