Community Groups

Community groups meet regularly in the Parish. Opportunities to learn new skills, be active and meet people.

Women’s Institute

The Women’s Institute (WI) was formed in 1915 to revitalise rural communities and encourage women to become more involved in producing food during the First World War. Since then the organisation’s aims have broadened and the WI is now the largest voluntary women’s organisation in the UK. The WI celebrated its centenary in 2015 and currently has almost 220,000 members in approximately 6,300 WIs.

The WI plays a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.

Cobo Wives Group

Activities may include a variety of speakers, outings, and inevitably some good meals out!

July and August sees us taking a little bit of exercise by walking (nothing too strenuous!) followed by a light supper at the home of whoever has volunteered to be the host for the occasion.

We support local charities by holding jumble sales from time to time and also assist at the St Matthew’s Church Annual Bazaar, by running a number of stalls.
