An announcement from the Board of Trustees of Denman College 

“Denman was the WI residential adult education centre, established in 1948 and located just outside Abingdon. It provided numerous different art, craft, cookery and other special interest courses for day and residential students”

“On behalf of the NFWI Board of Trustees, it is with great sadness that we announce our proposal to close Denman permanently. This has been an extremely difficult decision and has not been taken lightly.

We would like to thank all members for their support of Denman over the years, including your enthusiasm and support for the recently established ‘Denman at Home’ courses.

We are absolutely delighted that this programme has proved so popular, and in the short term, it is our intention to continue to deliver and grow this offer to ensure that members can continue to access the high-quality Denman activities that we have always prided ourselves in. You can sign up to these courses via the Denman website here:”
