Events Committee

Chairman: Verity Conner

The Events Team are the coordinators of different activities for the Federation, which take place throughout the County.

We aim to find different venues so that our get togethers are much more inclusive, especially as Staffordshire members are spread widely throughout the County.

We are striving to include WIs, local to the area of each event, to assist us.

Recent events include a cream tea at Whiston Hall with Lesley Smith, the curator of Tutbury Castle, in character and the costume of Nell Gwynne. Whiston WI ladies and the Events team made it happen and the afternoon went with a swing.

Our two big Annual Events are ‘Here Come Spring’ at the Showground in April – last year’s keynote speaker was Nancy Birtwhistle, eco – cleaning guru – and our ‘It’s Christmas’  in November. Wynne Evans, opera singer, Celebrity MasterChef winner and also very well known  for his TV advertisements as Gio Compario was last year’s main speaker.
