Every year, SFWI hosts a Show.  In the past this has been at the two day Shrewsbury Flower Show in August and last year was held at Shrewsbury Abbey in conjunction with the WI Day Federation Event.

The team produces a themed schedule that we hope will encourage members from all parts of the county to enter SFWI competitions - in both group and individual categories - at the show.

We begin to plan the schedule in October ready to be sent out to everyone in January and will be published here when available. 

Information and reminders are also sent to WI secretaries, put into County News and onto Facebook.

Team members are able to visit individual institutes to give encouragement, answer questions or help with any problems.

A “Showing Off” workshop is held each year – a chance to get practical advice and question WI judges before making final decisions about their show entries. This workshop is open to all members who plan to enter the WI section in Shrewsbury or any other show in the county.

If stewards are needed for the Show, we hold an information evening for members who have offered to take on this role and support the event. We work hard to give members the chance to show to the public the very wide range of skills, interests and activities available to all members of the WI and are always surprised and delighted by the creativity of our members.
