The National Federation of Women's Institutes (NFWI), is the largest voluntary organisation for women in the UK, with 205,000 members in England, Wales and the Islands.
They play a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.
The WI provides an ideal medium for meeting and socialising with new people, allowing women to get involved in their community, gain confidence and even qualifications.
Enjoy lively monthly meetings, animated discussions on local and national issues, a varied programme of speakers and outings to theatres and garden parties.
The Whixall branch of the WI meet on the 1st Wednesday of every month at 7:30pm at Whixall Social Centre.
Whixall Bowling Club opened for play in 1984 and has grown to a membership of over 80 players. There are 4 teams in the Whitchurch Bowling League and 4 teams in the Market Drayton League.
The games are played Monday to Friday, leaving Wednesday for club activities and extra league and county competitions. In addition there are 2 senior citizens teams in the Barlows League which plays 2 afternoons per week.
There are also friendly matches arranged occasionally as not all members wish to be registered or play in the league.
The Club holds various social events which usually includes an annual summer barbecue, sponsored walks for charity and an end of season Presentation Evening dance in November. Open days are held once a year to try to attract new members.
Non members can play on the green with members at a fee of 50p. For further information contact the secretary, Pam Donaldson on 01948-710466 or the Chairman, Owen Darlington on 01948 841306.
