Farnley Tyas WI was closed and reopened in 2009, which makes it one of the newer WI’s in the West Yorkshire Federation. With 27 members they are quite an active WI within their community of Farnley Tyas. Recently, they have had speakers at each meeting that cover a range of interesting topics, the members do hands on craft demonstrations for the other members to learn as well as fundraising for Farnley Tyas. This WI also holds their craft club in the local school as well as teaching the children valuable craft skills. Farnley Tyas have also created a cushion for the London 2012 Olympic Games out of British wool. Also this year they have hosted a Diamond Jubilee event and on the 26th of September they have planned an open evening for an Admiral Nurses talk.
