President’s Post April 2021
I hope this message finds you all well and enjoying the sunshine and hopefully enjoying a little more freedom.
Our Treasurer Wendy has sent you an email requesting this years subs of £44. Please can I ask you to pay by the end of the month. If you are a tax payer (or your subs are paid by a tax payer) please complete and return the Gift Aid form. Let us know if you are unable to print and return this form to Wendy – in which case we will arrange help.
NFWI Constitutional Changes
We were all consulted in December regarding proposed changes to the NFWI constitution. This in essence gave permission for all WI’s to hold their Annual Meetings virtually.
These changes were accepted by all and voted through recently.
The Committee have been considering how we will move forward as the restrictions are lifted by the Government. Our next few meetings will continue virtually and we are looking to meet outside in July (weather permitting). As far as holding meetings back at the School Hall – this will have to wait until later in the year.
April Meeting – April 28th 2021
At April’s Meeting we look forward to welcoming Sarah Lott. Sarah will be showing us how to create a life story from family memories to follow up from our January meeting ‘How to Research your Family Tree.’
Annual Meeting – May 26th 2021
Unfortunately once again we have to hold The Annual Meeting virtually (by Zoom). The Annual Report and Financial Statements will be sent to you before this meeting. We will be voting and welcoming new members to the Committee and nominating and voting the role of President. Once we have done the business side of the meeting we will be welcoming Susie Cooper (member of the Tilly WIdget WI and Board of Trustees ) who will give us an entertaining talk on her life as a train driver
June Meeting – 23rd June 2021
Many of us take photographs and hope that it might ‘capture the moment’ as we see it. In June we will be lucky enough to hear from David Chapman, Wildlife and Landscape photographer who is going to tell us all how we can improve our photography and those moments.
