Welcome to Lincolnshire Humber Federation Website

Federation Chairman, Jennifer Nix 

Are you new to our area? Have you lived here a while, but feel you need an new interest?  Then the W.I. might be just what you are looking for.

The majority of our WIs are in villages, but a few are in, or near, the towns of Scunthorpe, Brigg, Grimsby and Cleethorpes. All meet monthly and offer a varied programme of events. Some have extra activities such as book clubs, craft clubs, gardening, walking groups and choirs, so there is plenty on offer.
Our Federation was formed in 1977 and covers the South Bank of the River Humber. Currently we have 41 WIs , but there are plans for more and we are always on the lookout for possible new locations. You never know, you may be able, with our help, to start one in your area!

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!
