Welcome to Example Federation

Welcome to the Powys-Radnor Federation


We are a small federation of just 27 Institutes with a membership of around 400.

We are in a very rural area but we all manage to meet regularly. Instead of groups we try to hold 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 the Radnorshire.

Federation Chairman

Libby's May 2022 message:

Dear Members, I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful month of May. The spring months are a time of renewal. The countryside is looking wonderful with so many shades of fresh green leaves and the trees laden with blossom.
In our WIs, I hope many of you have now renewed your membership of PRFWI. We are delighted that Gladestry WI has reformed after their year’s suspension and happy at the news that other PRFWIs have  welcomed new members. Sadly, St Harmon has suspended for this year, but that decision to be reviewed  in a year’s time.
We have much to look forward to in our new WI year. For those who expressed an interest in Digital Training  we are working to bring you the Digital Skills Course. 17 teams have entered the Quiz on May 18th. The theme for our Poetry and Prose evening on June 22nd is “The Natural World” with refreshments of Puddings  and Punch and excitement is rising for our County Show on 18th June. Our first session of Walking Netball was a huge success and much enjoyed. Our craft events continue to be popular and happy occasions. Many  thanks to Melanie for her Sustainable Sewing Workshop making Tote bags from textile waste.
Not plastic Fantastic!
Please enjoy your new year of meetings and events and let us know if there is anything we can do for you.
Best Wishes to all, Libby.
