The Women’s Institute

WI Logo

Cholesbury & St Leonards W.I. was formed as an evening institute in July 1979 following the suspension of the afternoon institute which had been active since the 1930s. We meet on the third Monday of each month at St Leonards Parish Hall in Jenkins Lane, St Leonards, HP23 6NW.

We welcome anyone to come to these meetings as a visitor. We have a reputation as being friendly and welcoming so why not come along – meetings start at 8pm.

There is always a certain amount of what is called “business” to go through, but this is kept as short as possible and is usually news of what is going on within the county and opportunities to take part in other events and activities, ranging from rambles to concerts and many others. More information can be found on Besides being part of the county federation, each individual WI is also part of the national organisation, and as such we have a say in a number of campaigning issues at a national level, and our views are listened to!

Posters advertising our meetings are put on the notice boards around the parish in the week before the meeting – We look forward to welcoming you!
