Hayton WI

Members visiting the Civic Centre, 2019
Hayton WI was formed in 1919. We have 37 friendly members who are always keen to welcome new folk. We enjoy a huge range of activities. We do the usual WI things such as helping in the community by serving tea at village fetes but we also have enjoyed participating in archery and target shooting. We have recently established a walking group; we enter teams for quizes, particpate in craft events and enjoy theatre and cinema visits.
