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, Craft 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

See our Forthcoming Events on the Workshops, Events & Trips page.


Due to the capacity of the venue where we hold our monthly meetings and associated health and safety concerns, we are having to cap our membership numbers and are implementing a waiting list. Any visitors and intending new members should contact the membership coordinator before attending a meeting. This can be done by emailing [email protected] This situation will be reviewed monthly.

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

NEW EVENTS to book on the Workshops, Events & Trips page

Our venue for our monthly meetings is BOARSHURST BAND CLUB, GREENBRIDGE LANE, GREENFIELD OL3 7EW. There is a private car park behind the club and plenty of street parking. The entrance is from the car park. There is a bar available and we have bought compostable cups for our hot drinks, but please bring your own mug if you prefer. The Manager, Linda, has made us very welcome and will be running the bar for us with drinks at Band Club prices so we hope our members will support her.
