The Saddleworth WI provides the opportunity for women of all ages to enjoy interesting speakers, watch demonstrations, participate in social events and trips, engage in lively discussions, pursue their interests in our many sub groups and hopefully make life-long friends.

New members and visitors are welcome at most WI meetings which take place on the first Wednesday of the month. We meet from 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start and meetings usually end around 9.30pm.

Our venue is The Oak Room at The White Hart Inn, 51 Stockport Road, Lydgate, Oldham OL4 4JJ

Members pay £2 and visitors pay £3 to help pay for running costs and refreshments. Visitors may attend two meetings before deciding upon membership.

Membership for the year is £43. If you wish to become a new member, download a membership form here.

MEMBERS: Take a look at our new Members’ Zone where you will find a variety of useful forms and information to download.

“I love this branch of WI.
The ladies are friendly, warm and full of fun.”
