Pavenham Women's Institute

Pavenham WI was one of the first to be started in Bedfordshire. It was inaugurated in 1910 and has been a thriving Pavenham society since that time. It provides ladies of our village with an interesting monthly meeting with good speakers and companionship. In fact for newcomers to the village it is a wonderful way to make friends whilst those who are long standing villagers are able to keep in touch on a regular basis.

The old minutes of the WI tell of the work done by the committees throughout the years to entertain the members in many ways by using their skills of baking, acting, sewing, keep fit, craft and knitting as well as a lot of walking. They have always been very active and a driving force in the village.

At present we have fifty one members and as well as our monthly meetings have a monthly Luncheon Club at a local pub-very popular. We also run a Book Group. The members meet monthly at each others houses to discuss the book they have read that month. We actively support the annual Flower and Plant Show and an annual charity lunch.

Any new residents to the village are most welcome . Please contact President Viv Kirby who will be delighted to take you along to a meeting.

Monthly meetings held on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:30 pm in the Village Hall.
See the Village Diary page for the full calendar of events.
