Scottish Dancing

If you would like to meet new people and have fun come and join the Scottish dancing group which meets in Wrea Green School hall every Monday evening at 8 pm, during term time, and expect to finish about 10pm. No previous experience is necessary and newcomers are always welcome.

Dancers from neighbouring Scottish Dance societies join us and Helen Smith, our excellent teacher, travels in from Preston and leads us in a varied programme of about 10 dances.

Cost £1.50 per session including refreshments.


Women's Institute

We are a democratic, educational and social organisation that is non-sectarian and non-party political. The aim is to improve and develop the quality of life, for women and their families and advance the education of women in public and international issues.

The meetings are held on the first Tuesday in the month at 1915 hrs in the School Hall. Joining Ribby with Wrea Women's Institute can introduce you to an unexpectedly wide range of possibilities and skills. We have a walking group, gardening group, book group, adventure group and French conversation group. We have access to many classes and entertainments put on by the Lancashire Federation of Women’s Institutes.  For further information contact President Jennifer Pickett, 01772 687486 or Secretary Helen Hooley 01772 681790.

Our meetings are friendly and fun. We have a short business meeting, a speaker, refreshments and a social time. December is our Christmas party time for members only followed by entertainment by our own drama group and in August it is our outing day.

Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI)

The Wrea Green branch of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution was formed in 1962 and has been waving the flag in the village ever since! We have an ever enthusiastic committee who work their socks off approximately four times a year raising money in a variety of different ways. To date we have one gold award, two silver awards and eight bronze awards to our credit and it helps us all to know that Head Office appreciate our efforts! We are always looking for new recruits for our committee, who are a friendly crowd, and would welcome the new ideas and energies newcomers could bring. We average six committee meetings per year.

Should you wish to know more about the RNLI try or else come along to one of our meetings. Contact Doreen Knight on 01772 682930 or email
