Marilyn Holehouse, Chair
Dorset Federation of WIs

Chairs Web Greeting   -   May 2019

Welcome to the website of Dorset Federation of WIs.

The Federation has now relocated to newly built premises in Poundbury, Dorchester, which has given an opportunity to design an interior to reflect the services they offer to members today.  The main change has been to provide a light spacious room, not only for committee meetings, but to give space and accessibility for members to meet for briefings, workshops, conferences and other events offered by the Federation volunteers.

The office staff, who work hard to administer the WI in Dorset, are now in a better work environment with a modern technology infrastructure which can now better support them.  This technology upgrade also allows Federation members to make better use of digital services in their work and communication with members.

Dorset Federation continues to blend the traditions of the WI and the world today.  We work to support our members and meet the expectations of prospective members.  I invite all who are reading this to look through the DFWI website and see what we offer.  You can also catch up on the day to day happenings of the WI in Dorset by visiting our Facebook page, The Dorset Federation of Women’s Institutes.
