The WI is open to all women aged 18 and over. It is open to women from all back grounds and life experiences. Membership of the WI offers a whole range of opportunities. You will enjoy a varied programme that includes speakers on a variety of topics, learn new skills, make new friends. The WI is usually associated with food, cooking and crafts but we also have a history of campaigning on a variety of issues, some of which have been controversial for the time.
Your membership entitles you to eight copies a year of WI life, our membership magazine.
The membership fee is £43.00 for one calendar year. There is a pro rata membership fee for part years.
For your first meeting we ask for a donation of £3.00, which helps towards the cost of the rent, speaker or materials used. We have a raffle at every meeting which is used to raise money for the group. If you think that you may wish to join Standon and Cotes Heath WI you may have up to three visits free and then you pay a pro rata fee for the remaining par of the year. In addition, we sometimes have a fund raising event, such as a lunch or cheese and wine.
If after your visits you decide that you like us and wish to join our WI talk to one of the committee members and you will be enrolled.
