|The Avon Federation was formed in 1975 when local government re-organised the boundaries and made several changes incorporating parts of Somerset, Gloucestershire and City of Bristol. This became known as the County of Avon. In the mid 1990ís the County was again reorganised and divided into  the Unitary Authorities of Bath & North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and the City of Bristol, but the WI decided to remain as the Avon Federation.|
Avon is a county of many geographical contrasts, reaching from the foothills of the Cotswolds in the north through the valley of the River Avon to the Mendip Hills in the south and includes two interesting cities - Bristol and Bath.
Avon Federation with 114 WIs and approximately 4,980 members offers sincere and warm friendship to members, the opportunity to learn together, to work side by side and to improve the quality of life.
