Welcome to Ceredigion Federation

As we celebrate our Centenary, which we had to postpone from 2021, we look at our meetings and events in a different way. Social distancing, mask wearing, risk assessments, zooming, muting, are all terms we've had to get used to in the past couple of years. Now that restrictions are lifting we have to get used to meeting up again and continue with our centenary celebrations

Of course our centenary year is made even more special with the appointment of Ann Jones, a member of Llanddewi Brefi WI and a dual member at Tregaron WI, as the first Welsh Speaking Chair of NFWI. A well deserved honour,  Ann works so hard on behalf of us members and still makes time to continue with her role as a WIA within Ceredigion. I think we sometimes forget that NFWI board members are WI members just like us.

Of course, being the WI we had to celebrate Ann's appointment with a Cream Tea at Nanteos.

As we move forward with our WI meetings we see another form of meeting evolve, the hybrid meeting, allowing some members to meet face to face in the room with others joining virtually. I firmly believe this will be the future of WI meetings and make them accessible to everyone.

CFWI  organizes a full programme of events all year round for our 39 WI's with nearly 700 members

If you are not yet a member, there is no better time to join than now. We have a lot of fun, make lots of friends, and together we can make a lot of difference.

A warm welcome to the WI in Ceredigion.
