In May we will be celebrating our 4th Birthday with tea and cake and our AGM. We will be looking back at everything we’ve done over the past year and planning for new and exciting adventures ahead. It is time to vote on the resolution for 2019, which focuses on mental health – read more about this in WI Life or on the campaigns page on the website. And we will also be engaging in some crafting to create new panels for our WI banner, some materials will be provided but feel free to bring any bits and bobs you have and would like to use.
