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.

Currently all meetings are held via ZOOM

New members would be very welcome and currently the fee is just £10.75 until the end of March 2021. Annual subscription will then be £44 for the next 12 months.

If you wish to become a new member, download a membership form here. Then email us for our bank details for your BACS payment, or for the address to send your form and cheque.

When things return to normal 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.

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.”

About

The group photograph of the new committee will be taken when we are all able to get together again.

Saddleworth WI know how to make the most of a bad situation. Has Covid19 stopped us doing what we like to do best? Absolutely not!! We still have our Monthly Meeting with Guest Speakers, Book Group, Quiz Nights as well as a monthly Tiffin (just a chat with friends old and new) but now we meet on Zoom. We have also arranged a few small group walks which have been very popular. We won’t be beaten by this virus and are still welcoming new members into our family of women. We will “Carry On and Keep Active” until we can get together in the real world.
