Welcome to Example Federation

Angie LeachFederation Chairman

Welcome to the Surrey Federation of WIs.  Please visit our website for more information about us and everything we offer our members.

We are a group of around 8,000 women in Surrey that work together for our common goals. Each WI meet at least monthly to engage in a wide range of interesting activities, including clubs, groups and events. At monthly meetings members enjoy practical workshops and lectures. However, it is important that we also have the opportunity to engage outside of our individual WIs. So, as a Federation, we aim to put on events in different parts of the county so that all members have the opportunity to attend. We have a presence at agricultural shows, hold workshops and have two countywide meetings each year.

Our wide variety of events range from literary lunches, days out in London on walking tours with a blue badge guide or Christmas shopping, fiendish quizzes, cream teas, fashion shows, new craft skill workshops such as portrait painting or willow weaving. Everything is possible and members are encouraged to send in their ideas for the committees to consider for future events.  We also produce a 22 page digital magazine detailing our events, news from the Surrey Federation as well as news from our WIs around the county.

To many of the Surrey WI members, belonging to a WI gives them the opportunity to find friendship with a sense of togetherness and belonging. Monthly meetings can be lively and chatty with lots of fun and laughter. Some give you an opportunity to be creative and learn more skills, while at others you will learn about something new.

Many WIs organise a variety of other activities throughout the month. When you need it, the members can be very supportive and understanding. Being a WI member can be an inspiring experience, and most of all offers you FRIENDSHIP! So, why not give it a go and see what the WI can offer you.

There are many ways to get in touch with us; through our Surrey Federation website, via our social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), by email and pen & paper. Please check out our website for more details.
