Buckinghamshire's first WI was formed in Ivinghoe in 1917. Since that time nearly 300 WIs have been formed in the County. Some have closed, some have merged with a neighbouring WI, some moved out of Buckinghamshire because of County boundary changes, but many new WIs have been formed and continue to be formed. The WI movement is currently enjoying a renaissance with many more women joining and discovering the fun of meeting people of all ages and backgrounds and learning new skills. We hope you enjoy reading about our proud heritage.
