Welcome to Rainhill WI
It has been a long 18 months since our last meeting in February 2020. Thankfully we were able to meet on Tuesday 3rd August.
Thank you to all those members that were able to attend. It was lovely to see so many friends and celebrate our 40th Birthday, which would have last October 2020.
Rainhill WI normally meet on the third Tuesday of every month (except August) in the Teak room (upstairs) of the Rainhill Village Hall.
We are currently working on a new programme, hopefully for the remainder of 2021 and will be publishing details in due course.
We try to participate in Lancashire Federation activities whenever possible and are also part of a group of WI’s in and around our local area, they are Kendricks Cross (also from Rainhill), Halewood, Liverbirds and Crank. We attend each others celebrations and events such as Carol Concerts, Craft shows and Group meetings where one of the WI’s hosts an evening of entertainment and of course a superb supper. We hold our annual Christmas party with Kendricks Cross WI.
Rainhill WI contribute to a number of local and national charities. Our main fundraising event of the year is the Rainhill Gala, which usually takes place on the Spring Bank Holiday weekend, sadly the gala was cancelled again this year but we hope to be back in 2022.
Trips and outing were understandably cancelled for 2020 and the beginning of 2021. We are looking at some possible trips for September & October.
Membership now starts in April and the subscription fee for 2021 is £44. You don’t have to become a member straightaway, you are welcome to come along to a ‘taster’ meeting for just a £1 at the door before signing up.
