Welcome To Powys Montgomeryshire Federation

of Women's Institutes. 

Thank you for visiting our website which we hope will provide you with information about The Women's Institute as an organisation, as our Fedration, our W.I's and most importantly our members. 

Allow us to introduce Powys Montgomeryshire Federation to you.  Powys Montgomeryshire Federation (PMFWI) was founded 27th August 1919, together with the enthusiastic and steadfast support of individual W.I's, where our Federation, since then has continued to flourish.  Made up of 45 W.I's spread over our geographically large county in the heart of Mid Wales, situated in villages and hamlets around the towns of Llanidloes, Machynlleth, Newtown, Welshpool, Llanfyllin and Llanfair Caereinion, our W.I's vary in sizes with groups ranging from 9 to 40 members, regardless of size PMFWI members are keen to take part in many activities, sporting events, drama festivals, trips, holidays, cookery, crafts, workshops, literary Eisteddfodiau, as well as campaigning on many issues that are important to them and their surrounding areas, most of all our members enjoy the social aspect within PMFWI, albeit as a Federation event or through their own W.I's. where our ladies, of all ages, backgrounds and interests come together for an evening of self development, fun, fellowship and by no means forgetting food!

Powys Montgomeryshire Federation of W.I's are part of The National Federation of W.I's the largest voluntary women’s organisation in the UK. The W.I will celebrate its centenary in 2015 and currently has over 210,000 members in around 6,600 W.I's.  The W.I plays a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.

We hope you have been enlightened by our introduction and that you will allow time to look further at what the Women's Institute here in Powys Montgomeryshire has achieved, and open to all.  We pride ourselves on our dedication to our members.  We may be small, but as all women know, good things come in small packages!

Please feel free contact us, if you feel you would like to experience our meetings and events, a warm welcome will always be waiting for you.

 Powys Montgomeryshire Federation of W.I's  really is everything you want it to be. 

Be part of it!
