Dunbartonshire Federation extends a warm welcome to you on this visit to our website.
The following is a brief introduction to Dunbartonshire Federation:
Each year there is a Show for Institute and individual competitions with both Housewifery and Handcraft sections, providing a wonderful display of work. Each Institute organises its own syllabus for the meetings. Most also take great pride and interest in helping their own favourite charities. These events take many guises, from concerts, parties for adults and children, quizzes, fashion shows. For these events each Institute is usually well supported by members from the other Institutes creating and encouraging the bond of camaraderie and friendship among members. Some Institutes organise trips and outings, again inviting others to join in.
Each year the Federation has what is called the 'June Meeting' hosted by each Institute in turn. This is the Federation Meeting where as many members as possible attend, have a very social time and enjoy the renowned event called the 'Rural Supper'. Dunbartonshire Institutes meet in some of the most scenic and historic areas of the country.
