Keeping the UVWI home fires burning!


Supporting You


As we continue to navigate our way through these uncertain times, we would like to remind you that our WI remains constant and reliable.


Whilst the way we are currently having to share our values of fun, friendship and fulfillment may be different, we are still here for you and we would like to remind our members that we can be contacted by email or by phone at any time. 

Although we may be practicing physical distancing,  we can still stay connected! 


Our members should have received an email about our Helping Hand support group which is here to help with essential shopping, collecting prescriptions, walking dogs etc.

So do keep in touch when you want to and share your concerns or your good ideas with us or even if you just want to have a natter!  

With very best wishes from your WI Committee.
