Denman is the WI’s educational college, set in 17 acres of beautiful grounds in Marcham, Oxfordshire. The college was established in 1948 and offered the opportunity to experience both day and residential courses in a variety of subjects, from arts and crafts, to cookery, dance and numerous lifestyle choices.
Following correspondence from National Office, it is with great sadness that we have to inform you that Denman College is to close permanently.
We appreciate that many members will be very unhappy about this, as Denman is a much loved institution, but in the current climate choices for the future are very limited.
For more information and a Q & A page, please visit the NFWI website and log in to MY WI.
This page is being updated regularly with the latest information and will hopefully answer any questions you may have.
In the meantime, do take advantage of the courses being offered by Denman at Home.
Details of these are available on the Denman website, www.Denman.org.uk, or if you subscribe to the newsletter details of the courses will be e-mailed to you direct.
If you have any queries please contact me or any of the Board of Trustees.
