Delamere Women’s Institute


Delamere Women’s Institute is a small friendly group that meets the second Tuesday of every month (except August) at 7.30 pm at Delamere Community Centre on Station Road.  Most of us live in Delamere and Oakmere and we are always happy to welcome new members.

Membership costs £42 in 2019 (or pro rata).  Visitors are welcome on up to 3 occasions before deciding whether to join.  Contact Lorraine on 01606 889188 or just turn up!

We are part of the Cheshire Federation and the local Forest Group of WIs and enjoy attending meetings and events arranged by these two bodies.

Our annual August Garden Party was held this year on a glorious afternoon in Barry and Cynthia’s beautiful garden; many thanks to them for their hospitality.


We were sorry to lose two valued members of our institute during the summer: Elaine who has retired as rector and moved away, and Thelma who has moved to live closer to her daughter.  We were delighted however to see Thelma back at the garden party and also Jean, who left us for pastures new some years ago.

With summer pretty much over, our September meeting featured magician, Peter Turner, with his talk ‘Curiosity killed the cat’.

Our next meeting is on Tuesday October 8th at 7.30.  The speaker is Liz Weston with an update on her ‘Autobiography of a common woman’.  The competition will be for a diary entry for a WI member – 1 side of A4 maximum.

November sees our Annual Meeting followed by news of a member’s trip to the Antarctic earlier in the year.

The year will end as usual with the Christmas Party.
