Renhold Village

Welcome to Our Village Website

Renhold WI

The WI

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

We now meet at Renhold Chapel, Woodfield Lane 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!

The fee for visitors to come to our meetings is £4.

Contact us here or Jeanette on 01234 870466. You will be assured of a warm welcome. You can also find information about events on Facebook

Garden Tour at Howbury Hall

On the 19th June, the Renhold WI were given a lovely tour of the gardens at Howbury Hall with Martin the Gardener who told them lots of interesting information about the gardens. They were then treated to a yummy afternoon tea by Jeanette at Dower Cottage.
