Hunsbury Hill WI began its life in March 1983 in the charming location of Hunsbury Hill Farm. Although not a working farm, it was remote, situated on the edge of the borough boundary of Northampton down a winding unmade lane. Slowly, but surely, over the years our membership out grew the available space and we moved to our new premises in Camp Hill Community Centre in early 2008. The centre is spacious and modern and suits our members’ needs very well.
A Modern Voice for Today’s
Friendship and membership go hand in hand at Hunsbury Hill WI. The members heartily support each other and the WI, even in the early years, when it was a financial struggle with so few members. Their endeavour and encouragement have increased our numbers to a current membership of over 70 members.Over the years we have taken part in many varied activities organised by the County Federation. These include archery, fencing, and falconry, fly fishing, canoeing, orienteering and white water rafting to name but a few!We constantly look for innovative ways to educate and inform our members with day trips to historic locations, theatre trips and weekends away. We also support the local community with litter picks in the local park and lakeside area. Well attended fund-raising activities support WI House, Denman College and ACWW (Associated Country Women of the World), as well as local charities, such as Cynthia Spencer Hospice. We truly hope that the name of Hunsbury Hill WI will always be synonymous with Hospitality, Humour, Wit and Individuality.
