GVWI Members at Diamond Jubilee

Hello prospective member of the Gothic Valley WI!

The GVWI meets once a month, usually on the third Wednesday. Anyone identifying as female is welcome to these meetings and although there is no charge if you just want to come along and try us out for size, we welcome of donation of £3 to cover our costs.

As a full Gothic Valley WI member, you get:

  • a beautiful black and silver engraved badge with our logo on it!
  • access to all of our meetings and activities
  • voting powers for choosing committee members and national campaigns
  • an official WI membership card which entitles you to discounts
  • a year’s subscription to WI Life magazine
  • a monthly newsletter from the Middlesex Federation
  • the monthly GVWI newsletter.

Sounds great – how do I join?

Membership of the WI costs £41 per year.

Part of this money goes directly to the National Federation, but part stays with us and we  use it to, for example, pay speakers or arrange educational events.

If you want to join please fill out the application form.

Please return it to a committee member at one of our meetings, either with cash or a cheque, or email us for details if you would prefer to make a bank transfer.

    I have collected somewhere your flyer and it really sounds like fun. I think it was on one of alternative sales cos I do remember yummy cakes. My name is Justice and I am photographer so I would like to offer you my services if the opportunity arose.
    Hope to hear from you,

    Kind regards,

    I’m a journalism student at London Metropolitan, and I find the Goth Valley very interesting. It’s the first time that I come across a women institute with a goth side. I would like to write an article about it, it would be published in my university newspaper. So I would like to interview some of the members and the founders. This interview wouldn’t take long, it would be just a short chat, or it could take place through email.

    You can contact me at

    Thank you
