Welcome to Example Federation
Federation Chairman’s Message February 2022
As the nights are now slowly drawing out we can look forward to Spring with nature’s new beginnings. As the time approaches for us to renew our WI membership we, too, should look forward to new beginnings.
Covid restrictions are due to end on 24 March but there are thoughts from the Government that this date might be brought forward. I hope our meetings really will return to a pre-Covid normal. There are many members who have not felt comfortable enough to attend meetings whilst there are still restrictions, and cases have not decreased dramatically. Let’s hope that will change soon and we can close the windows!
We have much to look forward to as a Federation, with craft sessions, kurling, skittles, and a trip to Chavenage House. Details can be found in DFWI News, here on the website and via your secretary. Although I’m not really in to crafts – I think I must have been behind the door when those skills were given out - I do have great admiration for those of you with the skills and patience to produce some wonderful pieces of work.
Our first trip for quite a while is booked for June so I hope to see some of you then and, just a few days before, a number of us will travel to Liverpool for the National Annual Meeting.
Our Membership and Support team are planning a programme of training events so if you are already an officer and would like some support, or if you would like to know what the roles involve, watch out for details of when and where the sessions will be held.
I know many of you will be involved with celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in your own communities but If you have any suggestions as to how we can mark the occasion as a Federation please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of February.
I look forward to hearing from you.
