Tetbury WI March 2021

Dear fellow member,
This month, I’m able to give you some significant news.

In September 2020 the NFWI launched its new strategic plan. One of its key aims is increased flexibility and this policy has been particularly apposite currently as Zoom meetings have been approved so enabling our group to meet virtually.

Another change is particularly welcome as it allows every individual institute to decide how much it needs from its members as an annual subscription. At our committee meeting this week we agreed to reduce the £44 proposed by the NFWI to £34. This will be the Tetbury subs for April 2021 to March 2022.  Look out for an e mail from Pam with more information and ways to pay.

We hope you continue your membership and are pleased to have received more enquiries from potential new members.  This fee may increase next year, depending on our circumstances, and it will be under review every year.  I applaud the WI for taking the decision to let us make decisions.

We have all, to some extent, missed our regular meetings and activities and you know that these will be organised again as soon as we are able.  In the meanwhile we have happily maintained contact with you through phone calls, the Christmas card, delivery of the newsletter, a monthly note from me and the offer of group as well as monthly zoom meetings.

The Annual Meeting of GFWI -online this month – will be attended by Anne as delegate and Heather as observer.

Our next monthly meeting on March 8th will be a chocolate demo from Jane Napper (I assume making not eating…). Anne will send you the invitation.

As usual, I’d love to hear from you so if you have any comments please be in touch.

Happy March!
Best wishes
