Birchgrove WI is a part of the Glamorgan Federation of Women's Institutes, and beyond that the National Federation of Women's Institutes. WI membership connects us to a whole network of women within our region and throughout England and Wales.
The NFWI Board of Trustees has set the membership subscription fee for 2019 at £42.00
The WI subscription year runs from January to December, so subscriptions are due in January 2019, payable at meetings either in cash or by cheque, which should be made payable to Birchgrove WI
£20.50 of that subscription fee goes towards the running of your own WI; £9.80 will go to your federation; £11.70 goes to the NFWI
WI members can belong to more than one WI. Dual members pay the full membership fee to their first WI, and a further £20.50 to any additional WIs they join at any time of the year.

What will that fee buy you? Well, amongst other things, Birchgrove WI members enjoy
twelve monthly WI meetings, each with an activity to get stuck into, or a fascinating speaker to learn from
a subscription to WI Life magazine, posted out eight times throughout the year
access to our subgroups - currently a reading group which meets up once a month, and a pastoral group
the opportunity to engage with a network of inspiring women - in your local community, and beyond! Typically over a cuppa and some rather lovely cake!
