That venerable institution is quite a force to be reckoned with in the small village I now live in. I know it is a force to be reckoned with in lots of places but never one in which I have lived before.
I have been asked by several of my new neighbours if I will be joining but have not made up my mind yet – I avoid an absolute yes or no by saying that I can’t rely on OH getting home from work in time for me to attend the monthly meetings.
I am in no way anti-WI just not sure if it is for me.
I did come across this book in the charity shop recently:
It was a good, informative read. I have read other books by this author, she is a good writer of social history. Some fascinating figures in the early days of the organisation – hardly surprising considering what they achieved with the setting up of the WI.
I am not sure it has made any difference to my ability to make a decision over joining or not but I did enjoy learning a bit more about it!
Any WI ladies out there reading this blog? What am I missing by not joining?
