Charlbury WI

We are a friendly, diverse group of women of all ages, and are always very pleased to see new faces at our monthly meetings. Our get togethers are geared up to be informal and entertaining, with our programme hopefully providing something of interest for everyone. (And we always treat ourselves to coffee, tea and home-made cake during the evening!)

Charlbury WI meet at 7.30pm on the third Wednesday in the month in the Memorial Hall. The 2018 subscription fee is £41. New members joining the WI for the first time can pay a pro-rata subscription depending on the quarter in which they join. For more information please e-mail Margaret Jowett on

Keep up to date with what we're up to: details about forthcoming meetings are listed on the Events page of the Charlbury website; our own website went live in January 2017; and we can be found on social media using @charlburywi (Facebook, Twitter & Instagram).

You can take advantage of a wide range of courses on crafts and cookery, available to members, non-members, men and women, at the WI's national training centre, Denman College which we are lucky enough to have on our doorstep at Marcham near Abingdon.

Charlbury WI started a Yack & Yarn group in September 2014 which meets on the first Tuesday of the month at The Bell (7.30-9.30pm). This is an open group and you do not need to be a WI member to join in. All crafters are welcome to bring along any project that they have on the go and have a drink and chat as they stitch, sew, spin, knit or crochet!
