Welcome to Rainhill WI
2020 is a special year for Rainhill WI as we will be celebrating our 40th Birthday in October. We are proud to say that quite a few of our members are ‘founder members’ from 1980, our President Edna North being one of them. We welcomed a lot of new members in 2019 and look forward to welcoming more in the coming year.
We meet on the third Tuesday of every month (except August) in the Teak room (upstairs) of the Rainhill Village Hall.
We have a packed programme for 2020. We play an active role in the local community with Rainhill WI being involved in the village’s VE Day Anniversary events on 8th May 2020, along with attending the Rainhill Gala on 25th May hosting our fabulous ‘cake stall’.
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 this year takes place on Monday 25th May on the playing fields of St Ann’s C of E Primary school.
We have some great days out coming up throughout the year along with some theatre trips.
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. Fees for 2020 are £43. If you have any questions, please contact us via our email form on our ‘Join‘ page.
