Welcome to the Leicestershire & Rutland
The Leicestershire and Rutland Federation was formed in1918. We have expanded since then and currently have144 WIs through the two counties. These range from small village ones with a fewmembers to larger ones with over 100 members – so whatever your age orinterests, there is sure to be a WI not too far away from you waiting towelcome you.
All the different WIs offer fun and friendship and a chanceto learn new skills. There is usually a speaker at the monthlymeetings, and time to socialise with fellow members. Otheractivities, such as walks, outings or craft groups feature on the WI calendardepending on the interests of the members. If you are new to an area, it is a wonderfulway to make friends.
The Federation sub-committees also offer members a variedprogramme of events on topics such as health, science, public affairs, leisureactivities, art, crafts and cookery. The staff at our newly refurbished offices inLeicester will be very happy to help you find a WI to suit you.
