Welcome to the Cornwall Federation

Federation Chairman

Welcome to the Cornwall Federation of WIs!

Please see our website for upcoming events and more news about the Cornwall Federation.

We are a warm, friendly, inclusive organisation, open to all women. Our membership is made up of women of all ages, backgrounds and interests. We believe diversity is the key to our success.

Are you interested in

  • Making new friends?
  • Learning new skills?
  • Joining with others to do something you enjoy, like walking, crafting or just trying something new?
  • Making your voice heard on a subject that is important to you?
  • Boosting your self-confidence?
  • Becoming a part of a movement with the power to change things for the better?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you’ve come to the right place! Why not join the WI?

As a charity that focuses on education and opportunities for women, we are a group of over 3,000 women throughout Cornwall who work together, while sharing laughter and friendship along the way. Each WI in Cornwall meets monthly to engage in a wide range of exciting and fun activities, including outings, walks, craft activities, meals out, monthly meetings and much more.

But we also think it’s important for us to engage outside our WIs, so we can meet others, broaden our horizons and feel a part of the wider WI. So as a Federation, we aim to put on events in different parts of the county so that all members have the opportunity to attend.

Our wide variety of events ranges from guided walking tours, buffet lunches, flower arranging, study days, camping weekends, fiendish quizzes, birdwatching, cream teas, fashion shows, down to learning new crafts such as embroidery and sugar craft. Almost anything is possible and members are encouraged to send in their suggestions for the Federation to consider for future events. Our motto is: The WI is what you make it.

Please visit our website and see if you like what you see!
