Many members, now too many to name individually, help the committee with various tasks during the year, for which the committee are very grateful.  For larger events, we often put together an event sub-committee which works well.

Without our active members we could not continue as the thriving group we are today.

New committee members are always welcomed; or alternatively we are always keen to recruit volunteers to join the various 'sub committees' that will be formed to help organise and run specific events throughout the year.

If you can offer your time as a committee member, or if you would be interested in joining an event sub-committee, please approach us for an informal chat.  No obligation, we promise!

Loders WI welcomes your ideas, your help and your support as we continue to look forward and grow in number in the years to come.  We are proud to have an active and inclusive membership of over 45 for 2019.

Please contact any of the committee if you have thoughts, ideas, suggestions, or indeed if you would like to help out at any time, even on an ad hoc basis.

Our generic email is: loderswi@gmail.com.  This is generally managed by the Secretary but is accessible for all committee members.

We look forward to another fun filled year for Loders WI!
