Reports were given by the Secretary, President and Treasurer on our activities and financial status over the last 12 months, before we then went on to elect our new Committee and new President. Although 2 members of our 2016/2017 committee resigned, we were pleased to welcome two new members, Jo Eyres and Marilyn Riley. We also confirmed our President for 2017/2018 as Cynthia Mortimer. Thanks were given for all work done over the last 12 months before we then breaked for refreshments.
During the break, we enjoyed a short presentation of posters and photos showing our activities throughout the last 12 months. Suitably refreshed we carried with the business of the night. Every year, the WI nationally considers various resolutions brought forward by its members as an issue for a national campaign. A short list is compiled leading to eventually one or two of the resolutions being presented to the National Meeting for voting on by delegates. This year the WI is considering (a) the impact of microfibres on the environment and (b) the impact of loneliness on members of society. (see more about WI campaigns and this year's resolutions on our 'More About Us' page).
