West Leake Womens Institute is a small friendly group of about 20 members who meet monthly on the first Wednesday of each month at 7.15pm in the village hall.


The institute is part of the Soar Valley group of WI’s, which celebrated it’s 90th birthday in 2021.

Our monthly meetings normally have a speaker or a demonstration, followed by refreshments and a fun quiz or game. There are trips out, a Christmas lunch and summer evenings in member’s gardens.


The programme for 2022/23 is available here.


New members and visitors are always welcomed.  Membership fees for 2022/23 are £44, visitors are charged £4 per meeting.


The Womens Institute is an international organisation, whose aim is to inspire women by advancing the education of women and girls, promote sustainable development and advance health for the public benefit.

One Step Walkers is a friendly Ramblers walking group aimed at people who are in their 40’s and upwards, based in and around Derby and Nottingham.


We put on a range of walks, from 3-mile gentle rambles to 20-mile strenuous hikes. We have weekends away, across the UK and abroad. We also have social meet-ups, visits to local landmarks and sights as well as live music venues, pubs and other activities.

Whether you are new to walking or an experienced walker who is looking for a group to walk with, you are more than welcome to join us on any of our walks. www.onestepwalkers.co.uk
