Welcome to the Powys-Radnor Federation

Who are we?

We are a small federation of just 24 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 Chairman's May 2024 message:

Thank you all for the wonderful day at Saturday’s County Show. I hope you all had as much fun as I did. The entries were fabulous, so nice to see the consistently high marks being awarded to everyone. The standards were amazing. Our judges deserve a vote of thanks for the slick and speedy judging of all the entries, even if a certain jar of jam caused issues as it refused to open, requiring sheer brute force in the end!
I can only heap praise on Eira and her team for making it all flow so well, the stewards did a fantastic job, marshalling everything in a lovely unintrusive way. Lyn ran the catering team with her usual perfection and kept us all fed and watered throughout the day, also thank you to everyone who helped supply the various food items.
Also, I have to thank the Ladies of the Craft club for all their help in constructing our new table covers, without them I doubt we would have had them ready. They looked as good as I hoped when I thought up the idea after discovering our old covers had been damaged by water and mice whilst in storage.
Congratulations to everyone who won, your entries were amazing, and good luck to New Radnor with your entry when you represent us at the Royal Welsh in July. Our honoured guest Lady Silk was amazed with your standards, and had a really enjoyable time, especially all the lovely food, hopefully we’ll see her again. Check our Facebook page for loads of super photos of all the entries and the prize winners. Ann.
