The Whiteley WAGs (Women and Girls) are a modern twist on the traditional WI model. We are bright and lively and our aim is to have fun in our WI. Our membership is currently full at 80 members, but we do welcome visitors every month. Anyone interested in becoming a member will be added to our waiting list and will be notified when we have a space for you.
