Our Institute was founded in 1918 and is the oldest Women's Institute in Lancashire. Our first President was Edith Rigby who was a militant Suffragette.


She was blamed for the tarring of Lord Derby's statue in Miller Park, although she did not actually commit the awful deed. She did, however, burn down Lord Leverhulme's wooden bungalow on Rivington Pike and throw a bomb into the Liverpool Cotton Exchange.   She was imprisoned many times for these offences, and suffered the terrible forcible feeding.

The charity, supported in 2015, was Associated Country Women of the World.    The charity we are supporting for 2016 is yet to be decided.
