A great big THANK YOU to Dobcross Band Club, Greenwood’s catering, Jim’s disco and Justine, our wonderful live entertainment for making Saddleworth WI’s Christmas party a success. Take a look at the pictures on the Gallery page!
Saddleworth WI don’t let a bit of rain ruin their day. A great event and a fun atmosphere. Well done to everyone who managed to take part in the Santa Dash!
REMINDER – NEW VENUE FOR MONTHLY MEETINGS BOARSHURST BAND CLUB Greenbridge Lane, Greenfield OL3 7EW Our new 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.
We are asking for donations for THE MEDICINE PACKET RECYCLING PROGRAMME and we will be delivering them to Superdrug in Rochdale who are happy to recycle them. Not only are we helping the environment, but the waste we recycle also helps raise money for charitable causes. Bring your empty packs along to the next meeting.
ACCEPTED WASTE: Any brand of EMPTY medicine blister packets Waste that is NOT accepted: – Any form of unused, unopened and out-of-date medicine, including tablets, pills, lozenges and caplets as medicine should be returned to a pharmacy for safe disposal – Cardboard packaging as this can be recycled through your local council facilities – Any other medicine containers such as bottles, inhalers or sprays
We are continuing to host some Zoom meetings, and will review the situation on a regular basis.
TUESDAY TIFFIN CRAFTY CHAT mid-month at 3.30 pm. Bring along your beverage and cake of choice and/or bring any craft projects for an hour’s informal chat and catch up. New members welcome as it is a perfect opportunity to make new friends.
MONTHLY MEETING On the first Wednesday of the month at 7.00 pm. At the last few meetings the technology was positioned to capture the speaker therefore members who were unable to attend in person could still attend the meeting remotely. See Meetings Programme page for details of forthcoming meetings.
“It is a pleasure to be part of this warm and welcoming WI group.“
Saddleworth WI know how to make the most of a bad situation. Did Covid19 stop us doing what we like to do best? Absolutely not!! Over the last couple of years we have still had our Monthly Meetings with Guest Speakers, Book Group, Craft Group, Quiz Nights as well as a monthly Tiffin (just a chat with friends old and new) but on Zoom. We also arranged a few small group walks when we could which were very popular. Now that we can get together in the real world we have restarted face to face Monthly Meetings, Book Group meetings, Craft sessions and lunches out which has been wonderful.
