the WI - Inspiring Women

Shenley Women’s Institute

Shenley WI was formed in 1919. We meet on the first Thursday of the month at 7.30pm in the village hall, except for August when we go on an outing.  Being a fairly large WI with over 60 members, we are lucky to be able to attract some very good external speakers for our meetings.

Forget about ‘Tiptoeing Through the Tulips’ or a walk in ‘An English Country Garden’ we were treated to a virtual stroll around Aylett Nurseries by Chris Thorne in a talk entitled ‘News from the Garden Centre Shelves’ for our November 2017 meeting. Then in December, the Aston Handbell Ringers entertained us.

Talks for 2018 include History of the Grand Junction Canal in Herts, The Criminal Justice System, Ideas for a Summer Buffet, My Dogs Nose Knows, and Quilts and other stories.

Apart from the meetings, we also have a book group and a craft club and we have a monthly ladies-that-lunch outing.

We are a friendly bunch with a wide range of ages and interests, so why not attend a couple of meetings for free to see if you’d like to join?  If you would like any more information, just give me a call.
