Federation Chairman’s Message November 2022

I don’t know where the time goes!  My apologise for the long delay in writing for the website but life just gets busier by the day.

We have received mainly positive, but a few negative, comments about the Annual Meeting at The Lighthouse.  All I can say is we do our best but you can’t please all of the people all of the time!

Your new Board of Trustees were announced at that meeting and the officers voted in for the coming year are:

Chairman :  Jenny Preston
Vice-Chairmen :  Margaret Bunch and Yvonne Marsh
Treasurer :  Marilyn Holehouse

Leri Ayre; Kath Burt; Mary Morris; Heather Trenchard; Jan Watson.

Esme Isaacs has stepped down from the Board, and we wish her well for the future.

The response to our request for knitted squares is beyond our wildest dreams.  Thank you to everyone who has donated.  We will keep you posted on progress.

As ever, we are keen to attract more volunteers so please contact me on federationchairman@dorsetwi.org if you would like to attend any of our meetings as an observer.

Best wishes

Dorset Federation Chairman
