Richmond WI meets in the church hall behind St Joseph and St Francis Xavier Church, Newbiggin, DL10 4DT, on the second Monday of the month at 7 p.m. There is no meeting in August. We usually have a speaker at the start at the meeting, followed by refreshments. We then give out details of any up-coming activities. In addition to the meeting, we have a needlecraft afternoon, a walking group and a Mah Jong evening each month and organise other events as requested by members.
Visitors are welcome without charge for a couple of meetings, so prospective new members can see what Richmond WI is about. Annual membership for 2018 is £41.00, but new members joining throughout the year pay a pro rata rate, depending when they join.
There is no meeting in August.
