Have your say

Haddenham Afternoon and Witchert women’s institutes have agreed to merge after meetings in the last two months.

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 means that Haddenham Afternoon WI can keep its belongings in the village and that Haddenham Witchert WI now becomes 90 years old despite forming in 1975.

A decision on the new name will be taken at the first meeting in January and could potentially be Haddenham and Witchert WI.
