Static Yearly Events

Jun - Saturday
Our WI Stall at Cale Green Park
1 -5pm

As a means of raising funds for our WI members are encouraged to once again start getting crafty to build up a stock of items to sell. 

These can be any ‘made’ items including jams if not perishable too soon. Unfortunately for the Park events we can make & sell jam but no piccalilli, mincemeat, marmalade or chutney as other stall sells these! 

Donations of in date perishables, craft or unwanted presents for raffle prizes can be brought to the meetings where they will be stored by Liz Luddington.

We may organise crafternoon events to make 'stuff' to sell & have a little bit of fun. Our last session  was a great success at the Blossoms Pub, to whom we are forever greatful for their support of us.

Last year it was at the Ukraine Club on the A6  
6:30 for 7:00pm. Fully catered cold finger buffet (including Vegan & Gluten Free), DJ & pay bar. 

Our outings group is run by the uber organised and energetic Patricia McGivern. We have been lucky enough to have trips to the theatre to see ‘Dirty Dusting’ and to the cinema to see ‘Ab Fab’ and ‘Yarn’ at The Savoy. Pat has been busy getting us all organised for our Christmas ‘do’ in December and she is hoping to organise an afternoon tea trip in the new year to give us all something to look forward to after the festivities! Thanks to Pat for doing a sterling job!

In June CGWI hosted a stall at the Cale Green Park Summer event. We had asked you to donate handmade goodies to sell and raise funds for our WI and WOW did you provide! Our stall was heaving with stuff you’d lovingly made! You volunteered to set up and organise the stall, run it on the day and pack away at the end! Brilliant! We made £170.00 profit that day so THANK YOU all! It was a marvellous day and we were lucky with the weather!!!!

In July Phil Catling offered the women an opportunity to go on a tour of the air raid shelters of Stockport-although it sounds like a claustrophobics worst nightmare the women that went thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it!

Annette Cobley kindly offered to organise a clothes swap back in July. She organised it at Cale Green Park and laid on tea & cake for people popping in with their unwanted garments to swap them for something different to spruce up tired wardrobes! It was a lovely day and Annette is hoping to do it again in Spring when everyone is starting to think about spring cleaning their tired attire!

In August Cale Green WI participated in Manchester PRIDE alongside other fabulous women from Women’s Institutes across Greater Manchester. This was the first time WI’s had collectively marched at Manchester PRIDE and Cale Green WI wanted to be part of this wonderful occasion to ensure anybody who identifies as a woman is welcome at our WI. It was an AMAZING day and we cannot wait for next year!


February concert: Song & Light Classics 

Organised and co-ordinated by one of our members it was a fabulous event and it was packed!  

Cale Green WI rallied together and helped with event preparations, as well as organising all the refreshments and provided the best raffle and vast amount of quality items i have ever seen at a local event. 

We made lots and lots of cake, tea, coffee, juice and served (drank) wine to support such a worthwhile cause. 

Outings organised by the fab Pat McGivern and Lisa Walsh
Feb - Seriously dead
Mar - Menopause the musical 
May - Frazzled by Ruby Wax & afternoon tea at the Plaza.
