Welcome to Hanbury Women’s Institute (WI)

Hanbury WI is friendly and fun. Our WI is one of the oldest in the Country. Hanbury WI was set up in 1917 with Lady Vernon of Hanbury Hall as President, something we are very proud of. The WI is a national organisation with institutes all over the Country.

Structure of Hanbury WI

We have a Committee which keeps members informed and up to date about WI activities. Our current President is Jill Harper and she can be contacted at
