The Rissingtons Local History Society
The Rissingtons Local History Society

The History Society was formed 14th October 1992 in Great Rissington through the efforts of Norman Good.

The original aims of the society were: -

1: To provide a means of gathering information about the past and present in the Rissingtons area.

2: To give folk from the area an opportunity of meeting together over matters of common interest.

3: To provide opportunities for social gathering.

In the society's 30th year, those core values are as true today as they were at the beginning.

We meet for talks 6 times per year and conduct visits 3 times per year.

The Other Book Club

'The Other Book Club' meet on a Tuesday evening, once a month. This group is more casual and less serious than most book groups. We have general discussions, usually sparked by current events or the books we have been reading. We all take turns in hosting. All newcomers are welcome.

Knights of the Off-Road
The Knights of the Off-Road

An informal group with bikes, who get together, usually on a Thursday evening and do a 20 to 30 mile on/off road Cotswold circuit, starting and ending at the Great Rissington Club and a refeshing cold one. It's an eclectic mix of pedal-power and ebikes, from the classic 'Call-the-Midwife' style, with optional front wicker basket, up to some pretty serious, but under challenged off-road kit. During the summer they will do the seasonal all day event and last year managed a stunning 3 days on the Alfred Way. All very welcome.

Women's Institute in the Rissingtons

Meeting on the first Wednesday of each month at Little Rissington Village Hall 7.30pm.

One year one of our (2) quiz teams got to the second round of the local group WI quiz! We plan to enter again this year!

The WI plays a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.
