Moor End Womens Institute
To many ladies in Mellor, being a member of the Moor End WI is a very pleasant experience, bringing together a wealth of talent, the opportunity to develop new skills and above all to enjoy being part of a very lively and friendly group of people. Interesting talks, educational and cultural visits are all part of the programme. We extend a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us. Meetings are on the third Thursday of each month at 7.45pm in Mellor Parish Centre. We look forward to seeing you there.

Mellor Church Women’s Evening Fellowship
Founded originally by Women attending Mellor Church, the meetings are now open to all who wish to meet together in fellowship. Its aim is to co-ordinate the many activities of women resident in the Mellor and Marple area; to stimulate friendship and to listen to talks and lectures of interest to the Fellowship members. Each year the Fellowship supports fund raising for a selected Charity. The Fellowship has a Committee of nine members who serve for three years and from whom a Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer are appointed. The Committee members, during their time in office, aim to provide a varied programme of events. The group meet on the 2nd Wednesday in the month at the Parish Centre, Mellor. The July meeting is normally an Outing to which family and friends are invited. There is no meeting in August.

We are a mixed group of both beginners and intermediate students. Anybody can practice the art of Yoga, it brings an awareness of body and mind, and is both stimulating and relaxing. The relaxation comes from concentration on the body position as you work. Come and try one class and see how much you can enjoy Yoga, there is nothing to lose!
