A younger woman's alternative to the WI is looking for members.
Maidenhead Ladies' Circle is appealing for females between the ages 18 and 45 who want to take part in a mixture of social activities and charity work.
The group, which has 19 members, meet twice a month and tries its hand at a variety of activities which in the past have included circus skills, indoor skiing and chocolate making.
Member Nikki Alvey, 37, said: "We are not quite WI."
"A lot of people see what we do and it dispels the myth that we are sitting there knitting and crocheting. We are more likely to be at the pub or abseiling off a cliff."
Ladies' Circle is an international organisation originally set up for wives of Round Table members although this is no longer a requirement.
There is 140 Ladies' Circle clubs across the country.
