The WI Guernsey


Welcome to the Guernsey Islands Federation


The WI is a welcoming organisation where the view of each and every member is important. It provides an opportunity for shared experiences, making new friends, socialising, campaigning, learning new skills and sharing existing ones. In short the WI is whatever YOU want it to be.


It’s not just “Jam and Jerusalem”. Most WIs will offer home- made cake at their meetings and yes we do sing Jerusalem at our annual meeting but there’s also so much more on offer. It’s full of inspiring women with knowledge, skills and experiences to share.


Guernsey currently has 9 WI's. If you would like to find out more about the WI, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Our Organisation

Our Trustees Team, who are all WI members, manage the operation of the Federation which includes an active Arts and Homecrafts committee and Darts league.


St Saviours WI

Joint Chairman / WI Adviser

I joined St Saviours WI in 2013 as I love arts and home crafts and knew the WI would be a great place to meet like-minded women.

I want Guernsey WI to make a difference through education and active participation in promoting issues that matter to women and the local community. I moved to Guernsey in 2006 to run Beau Vallon Holiday apartments and recently have been part of the COVID Welcome team at the airport and harbour.

During my WI Advisor training I was inspired by the causes the WI have lobbied for in the past such as ‘Equal pay for Women’.Now I want to make sure the WI in Guernsey does the same for women in our community. Also Eileen Jones taught me how to bake a Victoria sponge without the peak in the middle- I will be forever grateful!

GY WI Vice Chairman

I joined GYWI 11 years ago and have been on the committee for nearly 2 years now. I love the friendship & camaraderie the WI offers and the unusual things we get up to.

I’m working full-time at the moment and thoroughly enjoy supply teaching at various primary schools as no two weeks are ever the same. Its fair to say I lead a busy life with two teenage daughters and a wonderful husband but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am a marathon runner and love sea swimming and try to get in 2-3 times a week if I can.

I’m sure we all love our own WI’s but it IS time to make some changes if we are to appeal to a younger demographic of women. Any support that WI members feel they are able to give to help the BoT achieve this goal would be very welcome.

Sausmarez WI

I am married with 3 adult children and my hobbies mostly involve all sorts of crafts. I am looking forward to travelling again.  I joined the WI in 1990 first Clos du Valle as they met during the day and I could take my youngest with me. My membership lapsed for a few years after I returned to work. Later I was a founder member of Sausmarez WI.

I have held various positions on both Clos du Valle and Sausmarez Committees and am currently on the Arts and Home Crafts Committee as well as a new member of Board of Trustees.

I look forward to the challenges ahead.

I have been a member of GYWI for 11 years, and a member of the committee and Treasurer for most of that time.

I hugely enjoy the great variety of different events and activities in our programme, especially the craft activities, entertaining meals out and the odd glass of fizz and fun with fellow members.

I work at Elizabeth College and also run a couple of Charitable Trusts.

I am married with two grown up children.
