2019 All Events

Who can come?

  • Members of The Hive WI can go to any meeting or subgroup, although some subgroups may have a limited capacity due to space.
  • Hive members can bring a female plus one with them to any of the subgroups an unlimited amount of times.
  • Non-members who are not a plus one of a member can try out every subgroup up to three times each before being asked to join The Hive WI officially.
  • Any non-member coming to the main meetings are invited to come three times each year before being asked to join as a member. This also applies to plus ones of members coming to main meetings. If you use up your three visits during year, you can come again three times the next year. To cover our running costs, non-members are asked for a voluntary donation of £5 when they come to main meetings. Subgroups, apart from the craft groups where we also hire a room, are free.

The information on this page will be updated as soon as possible if any plans change or if new subgroups or details are added.
