Selside WI usually meets on the first Thursday of each month at Selside Memorial Hall at 7.30pm
Our friendly meetings comprise a short ‘business section’ when we hear about the WI in the local area, and a section when we have a guest speaker or activity. Our programme is varied and caters for all tastes. Some speakers give illustrated talks, others give practical demonstrations and sometimes we meet for other activities. There is always something happening in the local area if you want to keep yourself busy. Belonging to the WI means you can meet people in both the immediate neighbourhood and from further afield if you wish. One of the most important parts of our meeting is at the end, when we have an opportunity to catch up with each other over a drink and delicious goodies!
New members are always welcome so come along and join us. You might even just like to come along as guest and give us a try! All meetings open to visitors (£3 charge).
