Welcome to Lickey WI

Try the WI!

The National Federation of WIs has been very concerned about the disruption this lockdown period has had on WI meetings and activities and membership experience this year. As a result, NFWI is offering a three-month extension for renewing membership subscriptions. Due to this, new members and members who have not been a member in the past 10 years can join the WI from October 2020 to March 2021 for just £10.75!

A couple of face-to-face gatherings were held over the summer but during the current government restrictions, Lickey WI is embracing alternative methods such as using Zoom for meetings.  Over the summer, small groups were able to meet in person but all meetings are now held over Zoom.  The Committee is maintaining contact with all Members by telephone or email.  The Worcestershire Federation is also offering a range of approximately weekly virtual events including quizzes, talks and craft activities – “in-house” events are available free to every County Member but where an outside speaker has been engaged a fee is payable by Members.  Non-members can join in for a slightly higher fee.

The last few months have highlighted the importance of knowing your local community and supporting each other so this is a brilliant time to Try the WI! 



The Women’s Institute (WI) was founded in 1915 and currently has almost 220,000 members in approximately 6,300 WIs.

The WI plays a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.

Lickey WI is part of the Bromsgrove & Hillside Group within the Worcestershire Federation (website) who also have a Facebook page at:  Worcestershire Federation (Facebook page)
