Hadlow WI was reformed in 2010 and meets on the third Tuesday of every month.   Meetings were held at the Old School Hall in the centre of the village but to enable social distancing future meetings will be held at Hadlow Village Hall until further notice. Occasionally there are outings in the summer when we might go on a walk or a visit.

The WI is now the largest voluntary women’s organisation in the UK.   Hadlow WI is part of Kent-West Kent Federation of WI’s and in turn they are part of the National Federation of Women’s Institutes, linking all members together. The WI is all about inspiring women and we do our best at Hadlow by endeavouring to put together a varied  programme of speakers and activities to meet our members' interests.

How do I join?

Each WI can be very different so you may need to visit a few before you discover the one that’s right for you. There is no obligation to join when you visit, but you will be asked to pay a small visitors fee (currently Hadlow WI charges visitors £4).

Check the programme to see what's on and come along and meet us - we are a friendly bunch.

If you subsequently want to join us then there's a simple registration form and a membership fee to pay.

How much is membership?

The National Federation of Women’s Institute Board of Trustees has set the membership subscription for 2020 at £43.00

  •     £21.10 of the subscription is kept by your WI,
  •     £10.00 will go to your federation (in our case Kent-West Kent) and
  •     £11.90 will go to the NFWI

In light of the impact that Covid 19 has had on our members and WIs, a three-month extension to this year’s membership subscription has been agreed. The next renewal date for membership subscriptions will, therefore, be 1st April 2021. In addition, from this point onwards, membership renewals will always be in April.


New members joining the WI for the first time, i.e. who have not previously been a member of any WI in the past 10 years, will pay a pro-rata subscription depending on the quarter in which they join. The rate per quarter is shown below:

  • 1 Jan – 31 Mar   £43.00
  • 1 Apr – 30 Jun    £32.25
  • 1 Jul – 30 Sep    £21.50
  • Special offer of 6 month's subscription  1 Oct – 31 Mar 2021 for £10.75

WI members can belong to more than one WI, by paying the full membership fee to the first WI, and a further £21.10 to any additional WIs at any time of the year. There is no pro-rata rate for dual membership

What does my membership entitle me to?

Membership gives you access to all our meetings (12 per year)  and any social events (additional costs may apply) as well as the national magazine -WI  Life delivered direct to your door (eight times a year) , a voucher booklet and the ability to vote on WI resolutions and for the Hadlow WI committee.

Who can I contact for more information?

If you have any questions about membership and fees please use our contact form in the Contact Us tab and a member of the committee will get back to you.
