Definitely large, -,opinionated women, who are all here to make a change , friendly, like a laugh, but care about our community

I would encourage women to join the WI, to make friends, drink tea/ cocktails, eat cake, get involved in and be part of group of women from all walks of life, and from a diverse community, . Showcase existing skills, learn new ones! Listen to interesting speakers, boost their confidence levels, to stand up and make a difference.

I'm looking forward to being part of the bigger picture, and an iconic organisation. Show people that we are resourceful, friendly, committed, feisty , confident , not afraid to speak up about issues that affect all women, as well as making cakes, jam and crafts, and to encourage younger women and girls, that being part of the WI is worth thinking about .., . We have certainly put the WI on the map in Newham.
