Linton WI is part of the Seales group which includes Netherseal, Stapenhill, Walton on Trent, Caldwell and Newhall. Every six months a group meeting is held when members from the group meet for a night of light entertainment and supper. Each WI takes turns to organise the night.
All WI's in Derbyshire belong to the Derbyshire Federation of WI's (DFWI) and members from all DFWI meet twice a year, in March and October at a venue in Derbyshire. Inspirational speakers have included - Gloria Hunniford, Pam Ayres and Michael Portillo.
There is an Annual General Meeting of WI every June. In recent years these have been held at a variety of venues around the country e.g. Cardiff, Liverpool and London. One representative of the Seales group usually attends. Resolutions on current issues are discussed in our May meeting; our votes are taken to this meeting by our representative.
