Scope and content
On May 21st 2014 the Bampton WI banner was hung in the south wing of St Mary The Virgin.
The banner was made by Pat Barratt, second from the right, and shows several aspect of Bampton life, notably the Morris dancing, the radio mast of RAF Bampton Castle, previously the Royal Corps of Signals and St Mary The Virgin Church. Sadly, the Bampton branch of the WI had ceased to exist and the banner was hung in the church. The vicar Rev. David Lloyd kindly said a prayer and these are these one-time Bampton WI ladies who came to witness the handing over of the banner for hanging in the church.
In 2019 the Bampton Branch of the WI was revived.
