2019 Membership

Our 2019 membership is now open. You can join by attending one of our meetings as detailed below. Once our membership is full (70 places) we will operate a waiting list.

  • The 2019 membership fee is £42.
  • This runs from January to December and includes 11 meetings (we do not meet in August).
  • We can only accept membership fees in person in the form of cash or cheque (we can’t accept electronic payment, sorry!) and we must receive payment before we can process your membership.
  • Membership is given on a ‘first come first served basis’.

If you join later during the year the amount is calculated pro-rata depending on the quarter in which you join.

If you want to be a member of more than one WI, dual membership is available at a reduced rate for your second WI.

If you do not attend 3 consecutive meetings we’ll be in touch to check everything’s okay and check if you’d still like to be a member. If you’d no longer like to be a member we’ll be sad to see you go, but please let us know so we can give you place to someone on the waiting list.

What does my WI membership include?
As a WI member, you will enjoy a varied programme; every member can contribute ideas to the annual programme of speakers, activities and events. Each WI holds eleven meetings every year and you can also get involved in the various regional and national level events and activities.

Your membership also entitles you to eight copies a year of the WI membership magazine, WI Life, as well as regular newsletters and mailings to keep you up-to-date with all the news and events from your federation (a small charge may apply) and the NFWI.

Each WI can be very different so you can visit the Peckham WI before you decide if it’s right for you. There is no obligation to join when you visit, but you will asked to pay a small visitors/guest fee of £5.00 and can only attend as a visitor once.

Please contact us in advance if you plan to visit as a guest so that we know to expect you and can make sure you’re welcomed. If you are unable to commit the time to attending WI meetings or do not live in the UK, please find out more about the NFWI Associate Scheme as an alternative to membership.
