Welcome to Example Federation

Jenny PrestonFederation Chairman

Welcome to the website of the Dorset Federation of Women's Institutes and my first website message.

I must first of thank Marilyn for all her hard work in the past three years and particularly for overseeing the move to our new premises in Poundbury.  We are now using the facilities there for meetings, training sessions and workshops.  If you haven't yet visited 18 Crown Street West I urge you to do so, to see for yourselves just what we are able to offer you as members of DFWI.

With the move to our new premises has also come a move to the introduction of Office 365, a computer package which will improve communication channels and ensure documents and conversations are stored safely and securely.  We also now have our own Facebook page where you will find details of planned events and follow up feed backs, amongst other posts.

This is an interesting time for the WI, both locally and nationally, and I look forward to my term of office, meeting as many current members as I can and welcoming new members as we move forward to 2020.

With my very best wishes
