Yardley Gobion WI has been part of the village for over 80 years.

As a very welcoming and friendly group we are far more than “Jam & Jerusalem”, much more “Community and Social Activity” orientated! We are a group of women ranging in age from 30’s to 80’s who meet once a month at the village hall in Chestnut Road on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 7:30pm. We listen to lively and informative speakers about various interesting topics, refreshments included, and have a chance to catch up for a good old chat! We also have many recreational activities and you can become involved to a lesser or greater extent as suits your personal situation. New members are very much welcome!
