Saddleworth WI welcomes women of all ages to join us for interesting speakers, demonstrations, discussions, social events, quizzes and trips.

We are a vibrant and active group and members can choose to participate in any subgroups that match their interests.

Our current groups are the Book Group, Crafts Group, Gardening Group, Lunch Group, Photo Group, Social Group and our popular Walking Group.

Our focus is on our members and helping friendships grow through shared activities.

Run by women like you for women like you!

We meet on the first Wednesday of the month at Boarshurst Band Club, Greenbridge Lane, Greenfield OL3 7EW. We open from 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start and we finish around 9.30pm. We usually have a speaker then after our refreshment break we talk about forthcoming events and activities and have social time.

Speakers booked for 2023 are on our Meetings Programme page
