Olivers Battery WI Subscription 1st April 2021 – 31st March 2022
When you pay your subs the amount is share between National Federation (£12.10), County Federation (10.30) and your WI (£21.60) total £44.00. Our committee has met to discuss and agreed that we should reduce our WI portion from £21.60 to £11.00. This would mean that members subs in April this year will will be £33.60. While the committee hope that members will be pleased with this reduction, we would like to say if any member choose to pay full the amount of £44.00 this will be most gratefully received. The additional £10.60 will be treated as a donation. It is important to note only the Treasurer will know which figure to choose to pay. Please contact the Treasurer firstname.lastname@example.org for any enquiries.
We are a friendly WI, who enjoy eleven meetings a year on the third Monday of the month, but not August. We are part of the Winchester Group of WIs and enjoy extra events organised through the Group. Not only do we enjoy our meetings, with excellent speakers, but we have a thriving Book Group, a Knit & Natter Group and Craft Afternoon Club. All these events are because they interest us, but we are always happy to arrange more to suit members’ interests. Visitors are always welcome and may visit up to three times before we ask you to join. If you like more information with Olivers Battery WI please email our secretary: email@example.com
