2018 WI programme

Report: December meeting - before embarking on our Christmas craft making evening Sally Coles spoke about her book ‘A Jelly was a High Thing’, a fascinating and thought provoking compilation of anecdotes about food and eating in the Parish of Enstone 1880-1980. Whilst making festive drink mats and angels out of wine corks! we continued reminiscing about the highs and lows of our own childhood eating experiences. On Thursday 11th January we will be celebrating the New Year with a meal at The Crown.

Committee Members - 2017:

Enstone W.I. was formed in 1921 with the aim of improving the lives of village women. Between the wars, much was done to achieve these aims.

One of our most successful campaigns led to the introduction of a 30 mile speed limit, through the village.


Now in the 21st century, we work towards enhancing the lives of women. But at the same time, our aim is to find friendship, and have fun.

Come to one of our meetings, on the second Thursday of each month, listen to interesting speakers, and learn a new craft or skill. Throughout the year, we have outings, walks, meals, and barbecues. There is also the chance of joining the County Federation on their activities. Or choosing one of the many enriching courses on offer at Denman the WIs own college.

We celebrated our 94th year with a party in the Litchfield room in the New Parish Hall in March.

April is our Annual General Meeting and with a new home we also have a new President Rizann Crystal who will promote the younger image of the WI.

We followed our AGM with a talk on The History of Masks with Christine Farmer, with a wonderful display of Masks and she gave us their interesting history.

WI Centenary 1915 to 2015 - Federation Baton:

Baton fire-engine Hook Norton dray fire-engine

A centenary baton is traveling around England, Wales and the Isles. It arrived in Shipton under Wychwood on Friday 17th April for the evening and travelled to Spelsbury Village Hall for breakfast, to Broughton Castle for a picnic, Bloxam School for tea and then to Greys Court for the hand over to the Buckinghamshire Federation. It was conveyed by a number of interesting forms of transport including a fire engine and the Hook Norton Brewery Dray through our local villages. The baton has been on a year-long journey through WI organisations across the UK, which will culminate with a celebration at the Royal Albert Hall in June.

The images show the Baton on a cushion made by an Oxfordshire member, the horse drawn Baton on it way to The Gate Hangs High and being transported on an Old Fire Engine outside Spelsbury Village Hall.
