Hop aboard for free WI experience

LADIES from the Women’s Institute are getting on board buses as part of a recruitment drive.

The women will be hopping on board routes in Corby and Kettering from Monday, which will feature their advertising for the organisation.

The Northamptonshire Federation of the WI was awarded a grant for the adverts on the internal boards of buses on five routes travelling around the county.

The four-week campaign will also see committee members offering “one free visit” coupons to women they meet to allow them to have a free taste of a WI meeting

WI spokesman Barbara Bentley said: “We also hope to identify areas along the bus routes that appear to be potential areas in which to form new WIs.”

The campaign is also running in Daventry.
