As each WI group is different you may need to visit a few before you discover the one that's right for you. You are very welcome to come along to one of our meetings, there is no obligation to join, but you will be asked to contribute a small fee to cover refreshments. As a Dolphin WI member you get:

  • access to all of our meetings and activities
  • voting powers for choosing committee members and national campaigns
  • an official WI membership card which entitles you to discounts
  • a year's subscription to WI Life magazine
  • a monthly newsletter from the Essex Federation

For more information on membership you can speak to our Treasurer at one of our meetings.
