Tonight’s meeting began with ‘speed dating’. Members had several opportunities to have several ‘speedy’ chats to other members that they may not have met before, hopefully setting up the opportunity to get to know each other better at future meetings.
This set the basis for some lively discussions over cheese and wine to discuss the pros and cons of this year’s national resolutions: loneliness and plastic soup in our oceans.

President, Vicky Watts, introducing this year’s resolutions
There’s loads happening tonight!
Tonight is Resolutions Night, when members get their chance to have a say on the proposed lobbying issues by the National Federation of WIs. This year, the two to choose from are ‘Alleviating loneliness’ and, secondly, ‘Plastic soup: keeping microplastic fibres out of our oceans’. More details on pages 20-21 of the April issue of WI Life.
Cheese and wine evening tonight
We’ll be making this into a fun evening, too, helped along with cheese and wine for all members. Bring a bottle of your favourite tipple and a couple of glasses, too, to share with other members. Tea and coffee available at the start of the evening (but no refreshments).
- Raffle – a floral garden theme
- Sale of nearly new bags and scarves (MHWI fund raiser)
- Planning to go on the boat trip in June or Paintpottle – have cash or cheque with you.
See you there!
