Who We Are

Thornbury WI was re-formed in 2010, since then the “Thorn Birds” have evolved into a friendly sociable group of women of all ages.

We like to try new activities and listen to a variety of speakers, we enjoy meeting new friends, and having fun.

Meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 7.30–9.30pm at Thornbury Methodist Hall.

Guests are always welcome. Annual membership costs £34.70.

Thornbury WI also offers extra social and educational events throughout the year and the opportunity to support and be involved in local and community events.

Our Latest Meeting

The speaker for the evening was Kate Grey our ‘Local Paralympian‘. Kate gave us a very enjoyable account informing members how she had strived at many sports, before deciding on swimming, and then went onto give an interesting synopsis of her time at the Beijing Olympics. Finally Kate told us how much she was enjoying being an Athlete Mentor and embarking on broadcasting. A vote of thanks was given to Kate for such an informative and entertaining evening.

Final details were given about the Supper Club next week, and updates on both the skittles and darts tournaments. The raffle was drawn and the meeting was brought to a close.

Our next meeting takes place on 18th March commencing at 7.30 pm at the Methodist Church Hall, when our speaker will be Francis Burroughes from Bristol Blue Glass. Guests are always welcome.
