Eton Wick WI - Our Community Today & Tomorrow

The Eton Wick and Boveney WI was started in the 1930's by Edward L. Vaughan and his wife. Mr Vaughen was an Eton College master who lived in the village. The village WI ran for 72 years until Christmas 2006, here are some photographs from the final meeting.

Mrs Joan Ballhatchet, a long time member of the village WI told Windsor and Eton Express "We were determined to keep going until 2006 so we could have our Christmas party and go out with a bang. We brought out all our trophies that the branch had won over the years and former members came back especially."




One of the scrapbooks on display was Our Community Today & Tomorrow that was produced and entered into the Berkshire Federation of the Women's Institue Golden Jubilee Cup Competiton in 1992. The Eton Wick and Boveney WI entry came 1st.
