Holmfirth WI is not just about our monthly meetings as we have extra activities that take place such as local walks, archery, theatre trips, woodturning and supper clubs. You can sign up to any of the activities at our monthly meetings. Plus we’re not always exclusively female, as we open up some of these events to children, partners, family and friends.

We also have several subgroups.  Some meet regularly such as the book club, knitting and crochet group and the craft group.  These subgroups are great for getting to know other members in a more social environment.

Aims and Resolutions

As a young WI, we officially opened in January 2013 we want to help strengthen Holmfirth’s community by getting involved in local events and supporting our neighbourhood wherever we can. We also want to support the women’s institute at large by following the resolution.  Check out our campaign page for current information.
