No one can argue that we are going through tough times and some are suffering more than others. At the April meeting Saddleworth WI presented a cheque to Oldham Food Bank for £1,500. We felt that this is a very good way of reaching out to those in need from the poorest families in our area. Thank you to all involved in the fund raising and well done everyone.

MEMBERSHIP FEES NOW DUECLICK HERE to go to the Members Zone for details.

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. 

The speakers for the rest of 2022 are on our Meetings Programme page.

The Lancashire Federation organises many events which may be of interest to Saddleworth WI members. Click to view details of these LFWI events.

Saddleworth WI are in the latest edition of Saddleworth Monthly.


We are continuing to host some Zoom meetings, and will review the situation on a regular basis.

TUESDAY TIFFIN CRAFTY CHAT  mid-month at 4.00 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.


Our committee for 2022-2023 has been elected, with some new members who will bring new ideas. We’re looking forward to organising another year of friendship and fun!
