Outings & Events

Every outing or event featured here are advertised through Flyers which are sent to the WIs in our monthly mailings. You can also download the current ones from this site by clicking on the appropriate events in the listings.

Bookings are made through your WI Secretary, you tell her that you would like a ticket for the event or trip and pay her the correct fee. She will collate all of the orders, complete the necessary forms and order the tickets from Federation House for you. We are sorry but at the moment we are unable to process ticket requests from individual members.

Sometimes events and visits are open to guests. However, our 4000+ Warwickshire WI members will always be our priority.

Chair of Warwickshire Federation
Digital Strategy Leader
Membership & Promotion Member

I became an honorary member of the WI at the tender age of seven- when, full of enthusiasm, I sold my Mum’s coat at a WI Jumble sale! In our household the WI was a way of life and when we had to move from Northamptonshire to Coleshill in 1967 it was but a small step to meeting new friends at Over Whitacre WI. Once married I moved to Seckington…… disaster – no WI, no pub, just 23 houses!

Not to worry, there was a thriving WI at Newton Regis so I joined immediately. Over the years I think I held most posts on the committee and was persuaded to join the County Public Affairs Committee. What an interesting world I discovered- the Trustees and the sub committees run a huge machine known as Warwickshire WI. The amount of organisation behind even the smallest event amazed me. I tried my hand at running trips to places of interest, baking biscuits for Women Reaching Women Days and helping with Trustee events.

I was thrilled to be asked to join the Board of Trustees and enjoy the variety of work which comes my way. As Vice Chair I held responsibilities for Strategic Planning and the Digital Future of Warwickshire WIs.

I am now starting a new adventure as Chair of the Federation- as we begin our second century of Inspiring Women- what an exciting time to be part of this fabulous organisation. The Trustee team is very strong and I am looking forward to great times ahead!

I’m a keen gardener, cook and passionate devotee of Denman College. Love the WI!
