Federation Chairman's Letter

I would like to welcome you to the Derbyshire WI web site. If you are already a member or are considering joining this wonderful organisation it couldn’t be a more significant year as we have reached our Centenary. The WI is the largest voluntary group of women in the country and Derbyshire alone has almost 6000 members, in 175 WIs. So new members won’t have to travel too far to their meeting!

We are really fortunate to live in such a beautiful County, with Glossop & Tintwistle in the north to Swadlincote & Castle Gresley in the south. In between these points there are market towns, villages, much wonderful countryside and of course the City of Derby itself.

The Federation hosts many varied events through its sub-committees: please click on the Centenary tab here, and you will get a real flavour of the importance of our 100 years. This year again we are at Locko Park in June for County Show where our competitions for members and some open classes are our showcase. Despite Bakewell Show having a year off, we are there at the end of July, in the Agricultural building to mirror those competitions in the north of the County.

Denman College in Oxfordshire is very dear to Derbyshire’s heart with a Federation visit planned for 2019, but many members visit independently to learn a new skill or improve an existing one as well as meet with like-minded friends.

This is just a snapshot of who we are and what we do; we look forward to welcoming you and I guarantee you will have fun!

Chrissie Booth

Federation Chairman
