About our Club
Our club was chartered in October 1961 and currently has over 30 members from a variety of professions. We give service, share friendship and also have fun. If you are a working woman who is interested in helping your community, challenging your thinking on current social issues and being part of an organisation which has over 100,000 members in more than 100 countries then maybe you would like to join our club. New members are always welcome.
Each month we meet on the third Wednesday at Fredricks Hotel, Shoppenhangers Lane, Maidenhead. Generally we have a business meeting for one hour, starting at 7.00, followed by dinner and a speaker – ending at around 10.00. We also have social and fund raising events.
The principal project undertaken by the club is the organisation of the Slough Child Contact Centre www.sloughchildcontactcentre.org.uk.. The Centre has been running for over 10 years and is open on the first and third Saturdays of each month. The Centre is administered, managed and financed by the Club. Club members act as volunteers to ensure that the Centre operates effectively. The Club takes an active interest in local issues and has been instrumental in the provision of mental health facilities in Windsor, and the construction of a YMCA Hostel in Slough. It also assists DASH. Additionally, members in each of the areas of Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead provide editors and readers for the three separate Talking Newspapers for the Blind in the area.
The Club has friendship links with SI clubs in Morpeth, Amsterdam Amstel, Banjul (The Gambia), Grenada, Nigata (Japan), and Vilnius (Lithuania).
