Wannock Downs WI 2024-25 Membership

For someone coming to WI for the first time we suggest you take advantage of one, two or three  free meetings to help you make up your mind. We also recommend you visit several WIs to see which suits you best.

Subscriptions  –

For the full year 1st April 2024 to 31st March 2025 the subscription is £48.00.
If you join part-way through the year the fee may be reduced. The pro-rata subscriptions are for the first year of membership only

If you have time on your hands or are new to the area but have area been a member of another WI, you may want to join straight away as you know all about the WI. Anyone wishing to belong to two WIs pays a reduced fee to the second WI currently £23.60.

We hope you decide to join us and look forward to meeting you all.
