The WI Means Opportunity

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 modern voice for women ~

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.

How lovely to be able to look forward, hopefully, to longer summer days and I can spend time in my garden pottering, something I enjoy and find so relaxing.

As I mentioned in my April letter, there have been five extremely successful Treasurers’ workshops.  There was a member who attended the Poynton workshop who filled in the comment sheet which indicated she required further help.  Please do not hesitate to contact Ann Daughtrey, Federation Treasurer, and she will be only too pleased to help you on a one to one basis.  At the end of the Workshops it became apparent that at least 50 Treasurers had not responded to the personal invitation to attend which is very disappointing.  The Board of Trustees and WI Advisers are endeavouring to give support to members at all times, so please do not hesitate to contact your WI Adviser in the first instance if help is required with any aspect of running your WI.

As I had committed to the Treasurers’ workshop I was unable to attend the PAL meeting at Tarvin which proved so successful.  I have heard nothing but positive comments about the meeting which was run by the Public Affairs Sub-Committee.  These meetings are always well supported and this was no exception. Congratulations to all concerned in putting together the meeting.

June sees the 500th edition of the Cheshire News and I sure many of you have many memories of the editions through this time.  I would be most interested to receive any photographs or pieces included in early editions which are special to you or your WI. All editions are, of course, kept at Headquarters but special thoughts you have would be most interesting. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hot off the press! The Board of Trustees are pleased to announce the Autumn Meeting this year will be held at Mere Golf & Country Club, Knutsford on Monday 21st October.  Further details to follow but please mark the date in your diaries.  The use of this venue is to reflect the Trustees commitment to move events around the Federation as requested by members.  The Mere Golf & Country Club is easily accessed from the M56 when travelling from the north or south of the Federation.  I look forward to seeing members on that date.

Next month is the Royal Cheshire Show and I look forward to seeing the marquee when all the exhibits are in place and meeting many members as they volunteer to help with different aspects of the Show.  Let us hope the weather will be kind.
