The village hall has a wide range of users.
We play badminton for exercise and enjoyment from 7.30 – 10.00 pm on Monday evenings. We normally play doubles, and rotate players and teams on an informal basis so that we can accommodate players of varying ability and experience. The sessions operate on a drop-in basis, so that players can come along for part or all of the session according to preference. No charge is made for initial / trial sessions, thereafter we each pay £25 per three months which includes the cost of feather shuttlecocks. Bring your own racquet.
Badminton sessions are currently not taking place owing to COVID restrictions.

Hartpury WI celebrated its centenary year in 2019 and as part of the celebrations an elm tree was planted in Broad Street. In conjunction with Hartpury Parish Council we worked on the garden round the War Memorial, clearing shrubs and planting flowers for a colourful summer display. We have planted two thousand spring bulbs round the Village as well as snowdrops round the elm. The WI has a range of activities and we involve ourselves within the local community, providing afternoon tea for the Villagers and tea for Hartpury C of E School as part of the 150th year celebrations of the School. We have supported the National Riding for the Disabled Championships at Hartpury College which has allowed us to donate equipment to the local Maisemore Riding for the Disabled. We take part in the Christmas Tree Festival at St Mary’s Church thinking up a different theme each time.
