The WI

WI banner

We meet in the evening (8pm) on the third Monday of each month at St Leonards Parish Hall in Jenkins Lane, St Leonards (Buckinghamshire), HP23 6NW.

An interesting and varied programme of speakers, to be found on this website, is put together each year by volunteer members and anyone can come along as a visitor and will be welcomed.

Posters advertising meetings are put up on the notice-boards around the villages and a message is posted on the Grapevine, together with a notice going into Hilltop News, our bi-monthly parish magazine.

Every local WI is part of the national and county organisations network. At our monthly meetings you will find out what is happening around the county where you can join in outings, craft days and other events and activities.
