Renhold WI was formed in 1923 and is still thriving in the Village.

We meet in the Village Hall, Wilden Road on the first Thursday of the month at 7:30 pm.

Our meetings are as informal as possible starting with some brief WI business then usually we have an outside speaker. 


We always end the evening with a cup of tea and a chat!

We also have several social events for our members such as 'LIght Bites at Little Hatch' plus visits to nearby places of interest and a river trip.

Thanks go to Julie Gillett for her Easter Chicks with Easter Eggs beautifully made for fundraising.

Mr. Duncan Willox a local Solicitor, then gave a humorous and entertaining talk about his life as a solicitor and his history dealing with criminal law and custody cases, then specializing in family law and custody and divorce and settlement cases. He was a serious and considered speaker then broke into the lighter side of life with his ‘Pam Airs type’ verse and funny anecdotes. We were all taken aback when he donned a ladies wig and had his arms flailing about whilst reciting a funny verse about losing his teeth in the sea.  A very entertaining and pleasant evening.

Renhold WI Bags are now for sale.
