Arts and Crafts

There are lots of opportunites for you to practice your arts and crafts. If you are a painter, a photographer or a skilled needlewoman there are courses for you to attend and competitions to enter.

Arts and Craft

Educational

The pursuit of knowledge is a goal for WI members. There is an annual County quiz which is participated in by over 90 teams. The Education and Environment sub committee are always looking for new ways to keep the little grey cells alive and well.

Health and Fitness

If you are interested in a healthy life style the WI is able to offer membership of a walking club. There can also be local initiatives for yoga, zumba, belly dancing or keep fit classes. Visit the website of your nearest WI.

Sports and Science

Sport plays a part in WI life. You can play darts during the winter months, bowls in the summer. If you prefer your sport a little less energetic why not play Rummikub? If you are a keen Scrabble player why not form a group in your area and have fun? Science can be found all around us and there are opportunities to increase your knowledge of the subject or take part in a workshop.

Social

There are many social events happening throughout the county. They may be organised by a local WI or by County. Last year for instance we enjoyed a concert at the County Showground in January, met one another at the County Show and had the Summer Celebration in August. Your nearest WI may have organised a visit to a local garden, cruised one of the canals or just gone out for a meal as a group. We are a friendly bunch and always welcome people to join in our activities.

Tablecloth

Hello everyone,

Welcome to the Staffordshire Federation of WI’s web site, I hope you enjoy browsing through the various pages, they contain a lot of information about our Federation.

Look at the Diary of Events, the map of all the WIs in Staffordshire - many of whom have their own website, the Gallery of Photographs and the contact page with details of our County Office where you can obtain more help and information.

Chairman-Denise Moreton

There are 136 WIs in Staffordshire with bright and lively members who have many different interests, from campaigns to sports, crafts, cooking, environmental issues and much more. Meetings take place in towns and villages regularly each month and visitors and potential members are always very welcome.

The county Federation organises very popular events, featuring well known speakers from far and wide.

I very much look forward to meeting you at a county or WI event.

Denise Moreton
County Chairman
