Village Hall 100 Club

For an annual subscription of £12 per person/household, the Village Hall Committee hold a monthly draw for all club members with prizes each month of £20, £15, £10 and £5. Apart from the monthly prizes, all the money raised goes towards the upkeep of our village hall, keeping this wonderful facility available to everyone for village activities, and to hire for personal events and celebrations. Winners are announced in the newsletter and here on the village website.

If you would like to join or set up a standing order with your bank or building society for the annual subscription, please contact Kate : Tel 01869 347476, Email:

Thank you to everyone who has joined, your contributions to the Village Hall funds are very welcome and with prizes drawn every month, you may be lucky and win a prize.

Women’s Institute

On behalf of the Duns Tew WI, we would like to introduce our small and friendly group where visitors are always made very welcome at our meetings. You will discover we are very informal, you can join in activities or not as you decide. What we are definitely NOT is all ‘Jam and Jerusalem’ so whether or not you can make cakes or whether you are a wiz or not at handicrafts is irrelevant – more than anything else we offer friendship.

Our Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 19:30 in the  Village Hall (unless otherwise stated) so why not come to our next meeting where you can catch up with all the plans for this year and maybe help decide plans for the future?

Gardening club

We meet on the last Thursday of the month for a chat about gardening, over a drink in The White Horse. It is not a formal gardening club, just an opportunity to talk about gardens, plants, seeds, weeds and anything else garden related with like-minded people.

During the summer months of May, June, July and August, we meet in gardens in the village. Please contact Jo Lilley for details of where the next meeting is.
