Would you like to learn how to bake perfect scones? Are you wishing you had more ideas for making crafts at home? Or are you passionate about Climate Change; Food Poverty; Women’s Health?

Then the Women’s Institute is for you!

We are Halifax’s own answer to the famous Calendar Girls!

Siddal Sisters was founded in June 2015, and used to meet in St Mark’s Church Siddal.  We have been meeting on line via ZOOM through Lockdown, and plan to use the Cricket Club in Siddal once we can get back together again.

Already this year we will:

  • Hear a talk from a Marie Curie Nurse
  • Have an Easter Bonnet competition and Quiz
  • Learn how to make boxes and bows from recycled materials
  • Have a masterclass on short story writing – and enter a National WI competition
  • And much more!

We have a table booked for a Craft Fair in June, and we will be helping run the Tea Tent in the Halifax Agricultural Show in August.

You don’t have to want to bake scones, be a ‘nifty knitter’ or want to change to world to be a member of the Women’s Institute! Probably THE most important thing we do, is become friends who look out for each other.

Our Main Meeting in on the 3rd Wednesday each month at 7:30pm, currently on ZOOM.  Then there are other interest groups, talks and opportunities throughout each month for you to join.

We look forward to hearing from you!

President of Siddal Sisters Women’s Institute.
