Plans to mark our 100 year milestone will not have been made in vain!

Carol Gibbon

2020 Centenary Chairwoman

In January 1920 Dame Katharine Furse formed the WRNS Friendly Association which later that year was renamed The Association of Wrens. It was formed to keep alive the unique spirit of the WRNS and to celebrate past achievements, preserve the history and traditions, foster esprit-de-corps and comradeship. These are still the aims of the Association today.

This Centenary year we have unfortunately had to postpone many exciting events which had been planned to take place, at a wide variety of locations. However we are confident that they are only postponed, not cancelled. Keep an eye on the events page to see what plans are in place for 2021.
