Brindle Community Hall

Women’s Institute

The WI LogoBrindle WI meetings are held every second Monday of the month in Brindle Community Hall at 7.30pm.

We currently have 32 members and are happy to welcome new members or visitors to any of our meetings.

We have a varied and interesting mix of speakers interspersed with members’ evenings. Supper at Brindle WI always impresses our visitors so let us prove to you we are not ‘all jam and Jerusalem’.

Membership of the WI is open to all women over the age of 18 years.

We offer friendship, fun and an opportunity to be involved in local, national and global issues. We enjoy trips and meals out organised by ourselves and also access courses and events organised by the Lancashire and National Federation of Women’s Institutes.

If you would like to give our meetings a try then come along on a no obligation basis for three months. If you decided to join, then the annual subscription is currently £41.00
