How lovely it is to see the snowdrops in gardens and in the hedgerows – Spring is on the way!

National Annual Meeting 2020 – Arrangements for the National Annual Meeting are well underway and we look forward to seeing the Delegates, Observers and any interested members at “Hear All About It!” on Tuesday 7 April at 2.00 pm in Cresswell House. The resolution(s) will be discussed with experts and final details of the trip to the Royal Albert Hall will be given. We hope to see you then!
WIs will shortly be receiving invoices for their share of the Delegates’ costs for the meeting. This payment of £2.40 per member has been calculated using the membership numbers appearing on the MCS as at November 2019.

Group Conveners’ Get Together – Invitations are being sent out to the Conveners for a Get-Together to be held in Cresswell House on Monday 20 April at 7.30 pm. We hope that Conveners (or the Treasurer for Groups without a Convener) will come along to talk about their role within the Federation and share ideas for Group Meetings.

Federation Day, June 2020 – The Membership Support Committee will be running a “Bag a Prize” tombola stall at the Federation Day in June and would welcome any donations of suitable items in bags from WIs. If you can help with this, donations can be brought to Cresswell House or given to the WI Adviser when she visits for your Annual Meeting before June. Many thanks.
