Welcome to the Harwell WI.
The WI is here to inspire you.
We play a unique role in village life as, through us, women of all ages are offered opportunities to enjoy friendship, to learn, to widen their horizons and to take part in issues which matter to us and the community,
It is all there for members to take part in as little or as much as they like.
Our main focus is on monthly meetings, but you will see us involved in many varied village events and supporting village life.
Harwell Village Community
Community Projects include stalls at various events supporting and fund raising for the church, Harwell School, the Harwell Feast and the Village Hall.
We have enjoyed outings recently to the Guide Dogs for the Blind Centre at Leamington, Aston Pottery, a History Walk in Abingdon and a performance of Matthew Bourne Dance at Sadlers Wells. We also visited Diamond Light Source to welcome the WI Centenary Baton to our part of Oxfordshire.
Oxfordshire Federation WI Events
We have Science, Arts and Crafts, travel, music, sports and leisure events organised by Oxfordshire Federation of WIs. Events recently included were an Evening with John Craven, the Federation weekend at Denman, and the Annual Science Lecture ‘Food for a Fitter Future’ with Dr Susan Jebb, OBE.
We try to cater for all ages and interests, and include practical speakers where we all have a go at making something, including painting a poppies landscape, felting, and folding napkins in a variety of ways.
Denman College, our national adult education centre in nearby Marcham offers a range of courses on diverse interests.
