Welcome

Our President, ValPresident Val

Quinton WI meets in Quinton Village Hall in the small village of Quinton, South of Northampton, on the road between Wootton and Salcey Forest.

Quinton WI was originally formed in 1946, although the first WI was opened in 1918. We have a long history. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month at 7.30pm. We normally have the speaker first, then refreshments followed by any WI news - anything we have done in the past month and events planned for the next month. Our members prefer to "do" something, rather than just sit and listen to a speaker. Hence, you may find yourself having a go at a craft. Whatever we do, you can be sure of a warm welcome.

We meet for a lunch in a local hostelry once a month in between meetings, go on Outings and Theatre trips, join in with local WIs for their events and support the County Federation with their outings and events.  As a small village, we are involved in the local community and are often asked to provide refreshments for the annual crowning of the May Queen - an event which has records going back over 60 years.

Take a look at some of our photos, including one of our President, Val Core (above). A welcome awaits!!

DURING THE PANDEMIC, OUR MEETINGS CHANGED!

Our WI monthly meetings were held via Zoom. We held twice weekly Zooms - one at 7.30pm Tuesday evenings and one at 10.30am on Friday mornings.

As restrictions lifted we met for an informal coffee morning 10.30am every Friday morning under the Walnut Tree on The Green, bring your own chair and refreshments. All welcome, WI member or not.  These are due to be started again soon.

We love meeting up again, but still taking care. We are a small WI and you are welcome. Come to see how we embrace being WI members.
