Thornbury WI was re-formed in 2010, since then the “Thorn Birds” have evolved into a friendly sociable group of women of all ages.
We offer social and educational events throughout the year, both locally and as part of the Avon Federation.
Apart from our monthly meetings, members have the opportunity of taking part in outings, supper clubs, knock-out skittles, walking and darts.
We also support local and community events and have a nominated charity each year.
