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.

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
