The Women’s Institute (WI) was formed in 1915. It plays a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities, and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities. The WI is based on the ideals of fellowship, truth, tolerance and justice. The organisation is non-sectarian and non-party political. The Women's Institute is run on democratic lines and all members have a voice.
We formed in June 2008. We meet on the third Thursday of each month at the Heatons Sports Club, on Green Lane. The doors open at 7.20pm for a 7.45pm start.
