Acton & Reaseheath WI

Acton & Reaseheath WI


Acton and Reaseheath WI have a membership of about 38 in a rural village close to Nantwich. We meet at Acton Parish Hall, Chester Road, Acton CW5 8LG. We are a very friendly group, keen to learn and have fun together. Our meetings are on the second Monday of the month, normally at 7.30pm, but the December and January meetings are in the afternoon. December starts at 1.30pm and January is a 12 noon start.


After some brief WI business, we have a talk or demonstration by a wide variety of speakers followed by tea and cakes or biscuits.  We arrange outings, craft days, regular walks and other activities for members to become involved with the local community. We have a thriving Book Group.
