Blewbury Women’s Institute meets on the 4th Wednesday of the month, generally in the Vale Room of Blewbury Village Hall. Ladies from all the surrounding villages are very welcome. We currently have 45 members of all ages with all sorts of interests.
As well as the regular meetings we organise trips to the theatre and also other outings. We have recently been to see the Snow Queen by the English National Ballet in Oxford and visited the Sonning Mill near Reading for the lunch and afternoon theatre. In the summer, we visited the Pendon Museum in Wittenham preceded by a pub lunch, Pam Ayres at the Oxford Playhouse and Stonor House near Henley. We also went to see the “Aldworth Giants” followed by (you guessed it!) a pub lunch. Every August we have a garden party in a member’s garden, usually on a Saturday so everyone can attend.
We have an informal Mah Jong group which meets on Mondays during the colder months and the Scrabble group meets once a month all year. A small walking group takes easy rambles in the nearby countryside. All groups are very informal.
Why not just come as a visitor for a suggested donation of £3 to see if you like it? Full membership costs £27 per year. Members receive a free, 74 page lifestyle magazine “WI Life” 10 times a year which includes articles on current issues, news, people in the media, travel, fashion, cookery, crafts and offers.
