The WI

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. 

The visitors free for our meetings is £3.50.

Contact us here or just turn up, You will be assured of a warm welcome. You can also find information about events on Facebook.

Renhold WI Report for April 2018

Mrs. Jeanette Roberts won the single stem, ‘Flower of the month’  competition and was awarded the plaque, certificate vase, and plant. Many Congratulations to Jeanette.

Mrs. Pat Lindsay decided to stand down as Acting President of Renhold WI. Geraldine Pearson-Green is Renhold WI President in 2018. 

Many thanks to Pat Lindsay for her work and support of the WI over the past year. Flowers were presented on behalf of the Committee and members. 

For our WI Entertainment, a Memory Box containing items from the  1950s-1960s was obtained from the Higgins Museum, which was great fun, reminiscing about old records, television programmes, foods and dressmaking patterns and the WI Scrapbook for 1965 and the latest Renhold WI 2017/8 photo album.

For our Refreshments, a lovely cake was enjoyed for the celebration of our WI for 95 years.
