We are a democratic, educational and social organisation that is non-sectarian and non-party political. The aim is to improve and develop the quality of life, for women and their families and advance the education of women in public and international issues.
Meetings are held on the first Tuesday in the month at 7.15pm in the School Hall. Our meetings are friendly and fun. We have a short business meeting, a speaker, refreshments and a social time. December is our Christmas party time for members only followed by entertainment by our own drama group and in August it is our outing day. We have a walking group, gardening group, book group, adventure group and French conversation group. Unfortunately, because of restrictions to numbers in the hall, we are not accepting new members at present. However visitors are welcome to attend up to three meetings without charge and can ask to be placed on the waiting list.

Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI)
The Wrea Green branch of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution was formed in 1962 and has been waving the flag in the village ever since! We have an ever enthusiastic committee who work their socks off approximately four times a year raising money in a variety of different ways. To date we have one gold award, two silver awards and eight bronze awards to our credit and it helps us all to know that Head Office appreciate our efforts! We are always looking for new recruits for our committee, who are a friendly crowd, and would welcome the new ideas and energies newcomers could bring. We average six committee meetings per year.
