Becoming a member of a WI gives you the opportunity to meet new friends and experience a wide range of activities. Chaddesley Corbett WI is a thriving group of around 70 members who are friendly and enthusiastic. We meet together each month

to enjoy demonstrations, and talks on a variety of subjects given by experienced speakers. Other activities include our craft group for the creative, a book club for those who enjoy reading, skittles and rambling for the energetic and the luncheon club for all who enjoy eating and talking!
For the more adventurous, Worcestershire Federation provide groups to cater for art, public affairs, sport, science, drama, home economics, regular outings to places of interest and holidays in the UK and abroad. There is sure to be something to interest you.
Do pay us a visit and find out more. A warm welcome awaits you at Chaddesley Corbett WI.

Members here's something to look forward to in 2021

We have rebooked our visits to Morton Hall Gardens next spring when the spring flowers should be in full bloom. The dates are Wednesday 21st April 2021 at 11.00am and Wednesday 28th April at 2.00pm.

The cost is £13.00 per person and each group is allowed to take up to 30 members with the morning visit being followed by Lunch and the afternoon visit by Afternoon Tea. There will be sign-up sheets when we’re able to meet up as a group.

The Flower Festival Weekend 26th/27th September will also be rescheduled for 2021.

RECIPE BOOK
If you haven’t done so, please let Shirley have your favourite recipe.

2020 ALBUM
Thank you to those who’ve already sent me photographs and details of what you’ve been up to during this 'Memorable Year’, this has been really great but I could do with more!

CALENDAR 2020
The meetings for July and August have obviously been postponed until next year.  No decision has yet been taken on the meetings and events for the rest of this year but I will keep you notified as soon as any decision is made.

ZOOM VIDEO MEETING
This will take place on WEDNESDAY 1st JULY 2020 at 3.00 pm.  It will just be an informal chat over a virtual cup of tea to enable us to catch up on what everyone has been doing during lockdown.  So far I believe there will be about twenty of us but all are welcome so if you haven’t yet let me know that you would like to take part then please email me:  drene.baker@gmail.com so that I can send you the link.  It will be good to ‘meet’ up with you.

Membership Subscription Extension

The NFWI has been very concerned about the disruption this lockdown period has had on WI meetings and activities and your membership experience this year. They recently held consultations with all federations to discuss ways in which they can acknowledge this in the membership subscription this year.

The NFWI are delighted to share with you that as a result they are offering a three month extension to this year’s membership subscription. The next renewal date for membership subscriptions will therefore be 1st April 2021. In addition, from this point onwards, membership renewals will always be in April.

They have added full FAQs to My WI to help you understand a bit more about the process and how this will impact WIs. The FAQs can be found here.

Our WI is 100 years old in 2020 so in addition to our normal programme we are planning a whole range of extra activities to celebrate our Centenary. Go to our Centenary Page for a list of proposed events. Some are still in the planning stage and details will be confirmed as soon as they are finalised. Watch this space!

We are always on the lookout for photos from any of our events or meetings to include on the website. Please email us via our Contact Us page if you can help.
