Welcome to Example Federation
Welcome to the Powys-Radnor Federation
Who are we?
We are a small federation of just 25 Institutes with a membership of around 400.
We are in a very rural area but we all manage to meet regularly by holding county events in different locations in order to involve everyone and to enable members to host events as well as attend as guests.
We always welcome new members and if you are visiting the area, or have just moved in please do visit a WI.
Our County Secretary, Paula, will be able to help you to locate your nearest group or the one which will suit you best.
Be assured that a very warm welcome awaits you in Radnorshire.

Our new Chairman's November 2023 message:
Hi All, it’s so nice to be able to write this as your incoming Chair. We had enough ladies step forward to ensure our wonderful Federation could continue, when it was so looking like we were not going to be able to form a Board. Thank You Ladies! Also, a big thank-you to Libby and the other outgoing members for all their hard work during their time on the Board.
We had a fantastic time at our ACM on the 11th, thank-you everyone who organised it. What an interesting speaker we had in Ernie Husson, telling us about his life in photography from the ups of meeting famous people and attending garden parties at Buckingham palace to the downs of photographing the Aberfan disaster, and the Dolau Mixtures entertained us with their usual flair.
Rhayader WI once again did your members proud with the catering, something thoroughly enjoyed by (and rather envious) our guests from certain other WI Federations. Thank YOU.
Many of you don’t know me, I’m relatively new to the WI only having been a member for five years, but you’ll all recognise me – I’m the loud one with the multi-coloured hair! Hopefully over the next couple of months I can get to meet you all in person. But, please, tell me who you are, I have an awful memory for names (it’s called Dysnomia), I’ll remember your face, but not the name that goes
with it for a meeting or two.
I’m looking forward to our new year, hopefully we can make it an enjoyable one for you all, but please, remember the dire straits we were in, help us to run your Federation by getting involved, joining one or two of our sub-committees that bring us all those old and hopefully, new events that we all enjoy so much.
See you all at the Carol Service. Ann.
