With the Cheshire Federation of Women’s Institutes you will benefit from having your voice heard and making a real impact on local, national and international issues. We offer the opportunity to learn, develop and pass on new skills, to belong to something special, make friends, work as a team and have fun with events.
The WI offers all kinds of opportunities to all kinds of women. We can help you to expand your horizons and make new friends, take up new interests, learn new crafts and develop new skills. The Women’s Institute is the largest voluntary organisation for women in the UK with 205,000 members in England, Wales and the Islands. Its concerns range from climate change to cooking, from crafts to community projects, from healthy eating to Fairtrade fortnights, from traditional values to new friendships.
It was with regret I learnt of the death of Margaret Eddowes, President of Gee Cross WI and Chairman of Pennine Group. Margaret was a stalwart of the WI and she worked tirelessly in her community where she was known and appreciated by so many people. She will be sadly missed.
Several Trustees of the Board are looking forward to hearing the Socialites WI singing at Chester Cathedral on 6th December when they represent the Federation. It will be a proud moment for us as they step up to be part of the
Service being organised by the Fire Service.
The decorations are up in WI House in readiness for Open House in Chester. It is a job I thoroughly enjoy and my thanks go to Lyn Hand, a fellow Trustee who helped transform the House, together with Diane Coulton, Federation Treasurer who decorates the two Christmas Trees.
The Archives Sub-Committee will this week start staging their Textile
Exhibition which will be on view from 5th to 9th December at the House.
The Board of Trustees look forward to welcoming many members.
I remind members that WI House is closed from Monday 18th December to Tuesday, 5th January.
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Christmas and New Year.
Jean Harding ~ Chairman of the Cheshire Federation of Women’s Institutes
