The WI Means Opportunity

With the Cheshire Federation of Women’s Institutes you will benefit from having your voice heard and making a real impact on local, national and international issues. We offer the opportunity to learn, develop and pass on new skills, to belong to something special, make friends, work as a team and have fun with events.

~ The modern voice for women ~

The WI offers all kinds of opportunities to all kinds of women. We can help you to expand your horizons and make new friends, take up new interests, learn new crafts and develop new skills. The Women’s Institute is the largest voluntary organisation for women in the UK with 205,000 members in England, Wales and the Islands. Its concerns range from climate change to cooking, from crafts to community projects, from healthy eating to Fairtrade fortnights, from traditional values to new friendships.

As you read this many of you will have attended our Annual Council Meeting at Winsford which I hope you found both informative and enjoyable.

Many members took part in the first round of the Federation Quiz during February, all venues are always well attended and the atmosphere of competitiveness together with fun never fails to amaze me. At the end of the month we have the PAL meeting and then the WI Advisers have arranged an evening of entertainment when “Stepping Out” a Cheshire vocal harmony group will perform. Both events will prove well worth attending; ask your Secretary for further information.

When purchasing tickets for Haughton Hall on 18th May you will be able to book a tasty prepacked lunch prepared by the Home & Gardens Sub-Committee.  Please pre-order a picnic lunch using the forms sent to your secretaries.  The picnic bags will include:

Assorted Sandwiches.
Cherry Tomatoes
Bunch Grapes
Yoghurt
Plain Crisps
Shortbread Biscuits and a bottle of Water.

If you would like Gluten free.  Please order in advance

You are, of course, able to bring your own food and drink (wine included). Not forgetting a chair if possible. All this will ensure you enjoy the atmosphere and surroundings of this beautiful venue. Please note there is no access to the Hall, owever, there are several interesting stalls for you to visit. Again, details with your Secretary.

Will members please note WI House, Chester is only open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 10am to 4pm. Staff have ‘quiet’ days Monday and Friday to enable them to deal, uninterrupted, with the large amount of work generated by the Federation.
