The WI is a democratic, social and educational charity operating throughout England and Wales. Membership of your local WI entitles you to attend 11 free meetings a year with speakers, demonstrators or entertainment as decided by members. You also receive the WI Life membership magazine, delivered to your door eight times a year. Other gatherings, such as craft clubs, ramblers, discussion or drama groups and choirs, are also often offered by individual WIs. Federation events are organised throughout Buckinghamshire and appeal to anyone with interests in art and crafts, sports and leisure, drama, public and international affairs, ecology and conservation and more.
There are 120 WIs in Buckinghamshire with over 4000 members.
Each one meets once a month and there's bound to be one near you! As well as the local WI meetings, there are county and national events open to all members and associates.
