Come join us – You don’t need to be retired to join the WI!
We meet at Gedling Road Methodist Church on Gedling Road, Carlton Nottingham NG4 3EX at 7:30pm on the 1st Tuesday of the month. The Church is at the junction of Burton Road and Main Road, also known as Parks Corner. The Church is also served by two bus services run by Nottingham City Council.
You’re very welcome to just turn up to our meetings; if you want to try us out before you join, visitors can attend for up to two meetings for £4.00 per meeting (including refreshments).
What to expect! Our meetings run for about two hours, and don’t worry about coming on your own, many of our ladies do and you will be made most welcome. If you contact us beforehand we can arrange for someone to meet you at the meeting as a 'buddy'.
Our meetings vary from inspiring guest speakers on a wide range of subjects to crafty get-togethers, social times such as 'natter nights', our annual tea party and our Members' Christmas party - with the odd coffee and cake thrown in for good measure!
We can help you to expand your horizons and make new friends, take up new interests, learn new crafts and develop new skills.
Membership Subscription rates
Each WI Member pays a subscription fee to cover the cost of her membership and to help with running the organisation. The current membership year runs from April 2021 - March 2022. The 2021 subscription is £44, which is split between the WI, federation and the NFWI to help with running individual groups and the organisation as a whole.
WI members can belong to more than one WI, by paying the full membership fee to the first WI and a further fee to the additional WI. For 2021 this additional fee is £21.60. This entitles you to take a full and active part in any additional WIs and have full voting rights on matters relating to your primary WI.
Pro-rata subscriptions for new members
A new member joining the WI for the first time (or who has not been a member of any WI in the 12 months prior to their joining the WI) pays a pro-rata subscription. This depends on when she joins, as shown below:
1 April to 30 June 2021 - £44.00
1 July to 30 Sept 2021 - £33.00
1 Oct to 31 Dec 2021 - £22.00
1 Jan to 31 March 2022 - £11.00
Associate members pay an annual subscription of £52.
If you are a Member of Gedling W.I and feel that you could help by becoming a Committee Member or help with the workload in a less formal way, please do let one of the Committee members know. You can also arrange to come along to one of our Committee meetings to see what we do before deciding whether to become a Committee Member.
