Welcome to Lincolnshire Humber Federation Website

Federation Chairman, Jennifer Nix

Would you like to meet new people?  Learn a new craft?  Or maybe you are new to the area?  Then the W.I. might be just what you are looking for!

We have 44 WIs, with a new WI opening soon at Althorpe.  Our Federation stretches from the Isle of Axholme to Cleethorpes and includes Epworth, Brigg, Scunthorpe and Grimsby.  All meet monthly and offer a varied programme of events.  Many WIs have extra activities such as walking groups, wine groups, book clubs, scrabble clubs, gardening and visits to the theatre, restaurants and places of interest, so there's always plenty on offer.  Recently 4 our of our WIs celebrate their Centenary this year.

Our Annual Federation Day was held at the University Technical College in Scunthorpe.  Our guest speakers were:  Alan Lavendar MBE - Chief to four Prime Ministers, and Nigel Brown - Celebrity Chief.  The Craft Competition was a delight, with lots of wonderful entries.

The headquarters of our Federation is in Queen Street, Brigg. It is the administrative centre for our Board of Trustees, the sub committees, the Advisers and our Federation secretary, who is on hand from Tuesday to Thursday 10am-12.30 and 1.00 -3.00pm. All these people work extremely hard to ensure our Federation runs smoothly and offers interesting workshops, outings, and other events, which are open to every member of our Organisation.

All activities are published in a bi-monthly Newsletter which is available to members.

Whether they are large or small, each of our WIs will offer you a very warm welcome and the opportunity to make new friends, learn new skills, or improve old ones.

So why not join the "inspiring" ladies of Lincolnshire Humber? We look forward to meeting you!
