Slaithwaite WI is quite an established WI based in Huddersfield. Last year Slaithwaite WI celebrated 25 years since their open in 1986. Slaithwaite is a strong WI with 30 members that meet at Slaithwaite Community Centre. Recently, Slaithwaite WI has made bunting for the village, so that it can be used during village days and celebrations. Slaithwaite WI also has a gardening group through spring and summer and they have a craft group on the 1st Wednesday of each month. Each year Slaithwaite WI creates a lot of fun for themselves and others in the village by having Safari lunches, murder mystery evenings and their yearly BBQ. Over the next year, this WI is planning a memory evening where members can create a booklet about their childhood.
