About Us

Welcome to Rayne WI website. Here at Rayne WI we are a friendly group who meet on the first Tuesday of every month at the village hall, Gore Lane, starting at 7.30pm. We usually have a speaker, refreshments, with time to chat to your friends. We sometimes hold a light-hearted competition and we also have a stall and raffle together with classes and outings. We are very friendly and look forward to welcoming you to one of our meetings.
