Winton is a very lively and happy WI, whose members come from all over the Winchester area and is a City WI. Winton is part of the Winchester Group of WIs. There are two book groups as well as a variety of outings and visits to accommodate all tastes. Over the past few months, we have been delighted to welcome new members and visitors. President Sheila and the committee look forward to welcoming new faces. Winton members are involved in the local community. We help with the refreshments for the visitors at Winchester Prison and cook a meal once a month for Winchester Night Shelter. Recent topics at our meetings have included The New Forest Centre, Shopping in the High Street in the 1940’s and 1950’s, William Walker and a Candle Making Demonstration.
From June 2021 Winton has become an afternoon WI, meeting on the second Monday of the month at the same venue, St Lawrence Church Rooms, from 2 – 4pm. It’s nice to get to and from the meeting in the daytime, and members are able to use the bus much more easily.
