Welcome to Example Federation

Jean HardingFederation Chairman

Cheshire has a wonderfully diverse character from the sea and sand of the Wirral coast, through rich agricultural land to the foothills of the Pennines. The Cheshire Federation was formed in 1920 and currently has the second largest membership of any federation. Our headquarters are housed at 11 White Friars, Chester, an interesting building in the centre of the city.

You are always welcome to visit WI House, enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and find out what is on offer through membership of the WI. We publish a monthly newsletter Cheshire News, which tells members about the wide variety of workshops, events, competitions and activities available to them in addition to the programme organised by their local WI.
