The WI plays a unique role in providing women with social activities and educational opportunities, the chance to build new skills and for those who wish to, the chance to campaign on issues that matter to them and their community

Have you ever thought about joining the largest women’s organisation in the UK?  All ages are welcome (we have recently welcomed a new, young member), you don’t have to make jam, sing Jerusalem or take your clothes off for a calendar – just have fun, make friends and learn new skills.


We meet on the first Thursday of every month at 7.30pm in Colne Village Hall, when we have a speaker or craft activity, followed by refreshments and the opportunity to catch up with friends and like-minded ladies.  We also have a Walking Club, Book Club and a Lunch Club that meet throughout the month.  Why not come and see for yourself or for more information contact:
