Haddenham and Haddenham Witchert WIs

In October and November decisions were taken by Haddenham Afternoon and Haddenham Witchert Wls to amalgamate. This is what the National Federation of Women's Institutes officially calls an enlargement.

The reasons for the two groups combining forces were varied, but it does mean that Haddenham Afternoon WI can keep its belongings in the village and that Haddenham Witchert WI now becomes 90 years old despite having been formed only in 1975!

The Afternoon WI was extremely pleased that everything will stay in the village and the Witchert WI will gain approximately 12 new members.

The Federation Chairman, Jean Morris, is very keen that neither Wl loses its identity in the merger so a decision on the new name will be taken at the first meeting in January when the two Wls are united but could now be Haddenham and Witchert WI and will meet on the third Wednesday of each month in the Waiter Rose Room of the Village Hall.

Originally in 1922 there was one WI in Haddenham, there then, from 1975, were two and now there will be one again. However, it does mean that the Afternoon WI does not disappear altogether.
