Longdendale WI

After celebrating its 6th birthday last October, Longdendale Women’s Institute is now enjoying 2014.  Monthly meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of every month at 7.30pm at Mottram Cricket Club (sometimes elsewhere for special trips).

The speakers for 2014 have been drawn from the local community with talks including: Making Music, Grave Robbers of Yesteryear, Young Women Entrepreneurs, Emmaus – Mossley, Yoga, Wood Turning Demonstration, Sugarcraft and other craft ideas.

New for 2014, will be a tasty visit to Lymefield Farm Shop and a daytime visit to Manchester Town Hall.  As always the year ends with a Christmas social evening.

As well as the monthly meetings, Longdendale WI enjoys participating by helping at community events such as Hollingworth Carnival, Mottram Show and FOBS –often providing activities for the children. An important event for us is helping with the Remembrance Sunday activities in the Community Centre.

Longdendale WI is a very friendly group of more than members.  New friendships are formed that extend members’ interests beyond the monthly meetings.  We are always looking for new activities.

Anyone who may be interested is welcome to come along to our meetings and see if you like us before joining.
