We welcome women of all ages who are looking for friendship and support. We aim to provide members with opportunities to discover new interests and to take part in a wide variety of activities and campaigns.
All ideas and suggestions are always very welcome, whether it is regarding speakers, trips or any other activities. Also, if you have a skill or would like to learn something new, please do not hesitate to let us know.
In April every year we organise a village litter pick supported by Cherwell District Council as part of the Great British Spring Clean. On Saturday 9 April WI members and a record number of local residents worked their way round most roads and open spaces in the village. At the end of the morning a total of fourteen black bags had been filled, another record. Villagers who encountered us as we collected were very appreciative. Everyone who took part felt a sense of satisfaction at what had been achieved and we hope that a cleaner village will discourage littering in the future.
After our Annual Meeting and our March meeting we enjoyed being introduced to personal treasures that belonged to eleven different members. These included a precious box made by the owner’s grandfather for her mother, an Edwardian teddy bear loved by four generations, a diary kept by the owner’s mother, a much played with monkey glove puppet and Rudolph Nureyev’s autograph which reminded its owner of his story and the day she finally met him.
Adderbury WI’s 2022 membership year starts in April. Our Committee has put together an interesting and varied programme for our members for the coming 12 months and information about this can be found in the Calendar section of this website. Following the relaxation of Covid restrictions we are once again meeting face-to-face at the Institute. We still try to ensure adequate ventilation and everyone is welcome to make their own decision about wearing a mask. We would be very happy to welcome new members to our branch.
