Join Us!

There are two ways to join us at The Hive WI: as a guest or as a member.


Be our guest!

You might be a +1 of an existing member, or you might not have any links with The Hive WI at all.

You don’t have to reserve a place but feel free to get in touch to tell us that you’re coming if you want to. It may be useful to know if you have any accessibility needs that we can help you with, and we’d be very happy to accommodate these where possible.

On arrival, guests are asked to consider giving a voluntary donation of no more than £5.

Your donation (if you chose to make one) will be refunded in full if you decide to sign up for membership. This refund is valid for up to a week after the monthly meeting.

Non-members can come to up to three main meetings as a guest each year (click here to find out what we’re up to), and you can go to all the subgroups three times each. You can then either sign up for membership or wait until the following year to come again.

2020 Membership Costs

We’d love to have you on-board!

Even if you are a member of another WI, you can still join The Hive WI with a dual membership (see the bottom of the page on how to do that).

The WI has a paid membership.

The payment lasts from the time you sign up until the end of the year.

If you’ve never been a member of the WI before (or if you haven’t been a WI member for the last ten years), the price changes depending on the month you join.

If you join between… It will cost…
 1 January – 31 March  £43.00
 1 April – 30 June  £32.25
 1 July – 30 September  £21.50
1 October – 31 December £10.75

Otherwise, the subscription for 2020 is £43.00

WI members can belong to more than one WI by paying the full membership fee to the first WI and £21.10 to any additional WIs at any time of year.

There is no prorata rate for dual memberships.

You can sign up for membership at any of our monthly meetings.
