Some members join just for the meetings, but there is always so much else going on. Your WI life will be as busy (or as quiet!) as you make it. As well as our broad range of groups, there are a large number of events organised by the National Federation of Women's Institutes (NFWI) and by the Worcestershire Federation (WFWI).
We also participate in local and national events that share our goals and aims as a WI.
