Twyford WI Celebrates its Centenary!
Twyford WI Registered Charity number 1020754 warmly welcomes new members, visitors and guests from other WI’s to our meetings. We meet in the Twyford Parish Hall on the second Monday of the month starting at 7.15 for 7.30pm. We do not meet in August but may have an outing. We usually hold our birthday party on the first Monday in December. Our open meetings are for everyone but non-members at open meetings are asked to contribute £5.00 and arrive at 8.pm after the WI business has been completed.
Twyford WI was established in 1917 and has close links with our village history. This is our 100th year. We celebrate our institute centenary in 2017.
Twyford WI Members have a monthly Luncheon Club, visit the cinema/ theatre and explore places of interest together. We meet at different venues to enjoy coffee and socialise. We play skittles for fun and in WI tournaments. We have a wide range of visiting speakers and opportunities to learn new skills. We enter teams for the WI Quiz.
We will be pleased to meet you and you are invited to share our friendship and laughter! Open meetings provide an opportunity for family, friends and the community to join our activities. Twyford WI members assist with a variety of village events and support the local community. Twyford WI and Twyford Elders jointly raise funds by holding a coffee morning each spring.
Our members are most welcome to attend the Programme planning Committee for future events and to pass on recommendations for interesting speakers.
