Roundhay WI is very organised each month for their meetings, they usually have a speaker each month followed by tea and biscuits as well as mingling. They celebrity their birthday each year with an evening out and in August there is always a day trip to somewhere local. Roundhay WI also have a walking group called the Social Strollers who meet fortnightly in the afternoon for a short walk and they finish off with a sociable drink in a local café. They also have a fortnightly tea and chat group where the members get together in the afternoon for tea, chats and for those interested in craft a bring their projects. There is also a knitting group for dedicated knitters who wish to develop monthly. Their last group meets monthly in the evenings to discuss serious issues, but usually it is tea and a chat and are very open for other enjoyable activities. This year they celebrated the Queens Diamond Jubilee in May with an evening of Spam and Diamonds dedicated to 1953.
