Outings & Events


Zooms – members should book these directly with Federation House by emailing or calling 01926 419998

Trips / Workshops / Lunches etc – members should book all other events through the 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.

Secretaries – you can find all the adverts and booking forms in the WI Officers area of the website

Sometimes events and visits are open to guests. However, our 3000+ Warwickshire WI members will always be our priority.

I first joined Kenilworth WI in 1981 when I had two small children under two and wanted to do something that was just for me. I found a warm welcome from everyone despite being one of the youngest, if not the youngest member.

Kenilworth was a large WI and in addition to the meetings there was lots going on, we had annual handicraft and produce shows, regular outings and a pantomime or show each Christmas , which was always well received, and great fun to take part in, I still have some of the photos although I am unlikely to share them with anyone now.  One year another member Jane and I put on a Christmas cookery demonstration between us, using recipes I learnt at Denman and Jane’s family ones.

I remained a member for the next 20 years, becoming a committee member and then president, only leaving when my work commitments meant it became difficult and ultimately impossible to attend the meetings.

When I re-joined in May 2017 I was a little surprised to be asked to become President at the AGM but I am really enjoying it again. Some of our speakers are thought provoking, others amusing and others interesting. I strongly feel as WI members, we should be enjoying ourselves and even if things don’t always go strictly according to plan, our lovely Kenilworth members seem to do just that.

Denman is one of my favourite places and I have done all sorts of courses there from line dancing to the Alexander technique with a wide variety of others in-between !

I was asked to join the Leisure Sub-Committee earlier this year and then I was honoured when Anne asked if I would like to be co-opted on to the board of trustees. The first half of this year has been a difficult one for me personally but I am really looking forward to the second half of 2019 and taking a full part in Warwickshire Federation.
