Here is a range of interest groups active in WHIXALL most of which are listed below: For further information on any of the following groups please complete our contact us page
Women's Institute (WI)
The WI provides an ideal medium for meeting and socialising with new people, allowing you to get involved in your community, gain confidence and even qualifications if you wish. Enjoy lively monthly meetings, animated discussions on local and national issues, a varied programme of speakers and outings to theatres and garden parties.
Whixall Whatnots are a small informal group
of ladies who meet once a month during the year.
We start in December with a very relaxed AGM to discuss our programme for the coming year. Suggestions from the group are welcome. In the past we have visited the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham, various gardens and National Trust properties and also members homes to hear guest speakers.
Our guest speakers have covered a wide range of topics from aromatherapy, a day in the life of a vet and teddy bears from Ironbridge to name but a few.
We usually meet on the first Thursday of the month except for August when there is no meeting. Our visits that are further afield are usually on a Sunday.
