Somerset County Federation of WIs (SCFWI) consists of 132 WIs all of which are very different. The SCFWI offers many opportunities from Cookery Courses held in the demonstration kitchen at the County Headquarters Wilton Lodge in Taunton, to away days and week long courses at the WI Denman college in Oxfordshire.
SCFWI has a County Chairperson and a Board of Trustees. The Chairperson of each of the sub-committees is on the Board of Trustees.
Each SCFWI sub-committee offers a range of opportunities:
Art Craft and Cookery: Offers craft instruction with everything from silk painting, painting with pastels, crochet, knitting and card making, and of course cookery demos and courses.
Public Affairs: Arranges visits to hospitals, police custody suites and solar farms to name but a few. Anyone who has ideas for visits, please let Wilton Lodge know and they will always be considered.
Music Speech and Drama: Arranges the annual Carol Service at Wells Cathedral, and also offers singing days, poetry days and again ideas on this theme are welcome.
Sports and Leisure: Offers everything from a day at the races to theatre visits, taking in canoeing, archery, croquet and many more.
Events and Fundraising: Offers everything from literary lunches, fashion shows to musical tribute nights.
All these events are advertised in the monthly newsletter County News which also offers information about the committees and projects.
