Who belongs to our WI?
We are fun, friendly women from the Cumbrian heartlands of Rusland, Satterthwaite, Haverthwaite and Ulverston. We belong to the Women’s Institute, an association with all kinds of history and traditions…
What is the WI?
The Rusland and District WI is a part of the Women’s Institute. The WI is the largest voluntary women’s organisation in the UK and it celebrated its centenary in 2015. It currently has almost 220,000 members in approximately 6,300 WIs.
The WI is non-political, non-sectarian and non-denominational, but definitely alive and kicking! The WI provides women with a chance to learn new things, meet new people, take part in a wide variety of activities and campaign on issues that matter to their communities.
