The name Seven Hills refers to the (believed) seven hills that surround the city of Sheffield, and aptly reflects the diversity of the women in the group and the different areas from which they travel. Since forming in 2009 Seven Hills WI, affectionately nicknamed SHWI, witnessed unprecedented interest from local women, proving so popular that it had to relocate venues.
Since the group formed, members of this popular WI have enjoyed all sorts of activities, including belly dancing, burlesque, cooking and craftwork, and history wardrobe talks.
Sub groups include supper club, book club, walking group and coffee & cake Sundays. Seven Hills WI has also been featured in local and national press and will often be spotted at local events, including the annual Sheffield Food Festival and the Sunfest beer festival held at the Rising Sun.
Meetings are in person !!
Keeping Seven Hills WI going was a massive task during the past restrictions, but we can happily announce our meetings are back in person at our usual venue. Some will be hybrid as we have members that can't attend due to health.
I was introduced to SHWI through a friend and have been a member for several years now. I really enjoy the monthly meetings, trying different activities, learning about different things and getting to know so many fabulous people. It's a very sociable friendly group.
