Lunch Group

We would like to invite any members who can steal a few hours in the day for “Me Time” to join our Lunching Ladies at different venues around our area for an informal meal and chat and a chance to make new friends. These are once a month, alternating Monday and Fridays starting at 12.00 noon.

The Lunch Group is available to Saddleworth WI members only.

Sign up at the monthly meeting or via the WhatsApp group. Pre-orders are usually required. Deposits will no longer be required but if there’s a no show and that incurs a cost then that person will be responsible the payment.


Date: Monday 13th February 2023
Time: 12.30pm
Venue: The Ivy, Manchester

Three tables of six have been booked so room for 18 people. As before, a no show or cancellation in less than 24 hours will incur a £20 per person charge. If there’s a clamour and more than 18 wish to go then someone else will need to take up the mantle and make a separate booking (if there’s availability) as the tables already booked are under individual names because, as we learnt previously, it is too expensive to book the large room.
