About Us

Why Did We Form


We began as a group of new mums who met at the local mother and baby group.  As most of us were new to Saddleworth our children provided us with a great excuse to go out and meet other women in the area.  It made us realise that there was space for a modern women’s group - a group which would allow women of all ages and from diverse backgrounds to meet, learn new skills and make lasting friendships. Forming a WI seemed like the obvious choice as Saddleworth had previously had a WI and the WI ethos matched our own objectives.


Where do we meet


We meet from 7.30 pm for an 8 - 8:15 pm start on the first Wednesday of each month at The Royal George,  Manchester Road, Greenfield, OL3 7HX. See map here


Monthly Meeting


At the monthly meetings we update members with the news from the Lancashire Federation, the Sub Groups and any fundraising events. 


Committee Meetings

The Committee meet once a month before the main meeting, to deal with the running of the WI. 

If you are interested in joining the Committee then please speak to a current Committee Member who will be able to let you know if there are any places available.


Sub Groups

We also have a variety of Sub Groups that cover a range of interests.  For details of what's available please visit the individual Sub Group pages.
