Women’s Institute

For our April meeting on the 4th, Madeleine Salvetti gave an illustrated talk on “Mistresses & Their Influence on History”.  Madeleine took us back to Edward III (of car park fame!) right up to present day, including royalty, politicians and celebrities.  She was ably assisted by Geoffrey, her husband, who worked the computer.  She did say that if she only talked about politicians’ mistresses then she would be with us all night!!

We have decided to start a walking group for the summer months, the first of our walks was in April (you’ve missed that one) and the next one is on Thursday 9th May which Sue is organising.  Keep your diary free for that evening.  It won’t be too long and will be in the evening starting at 6.30 at The Foresters, Kirdford.

Our next meeting will be held on the 2nd May at The Sports Pavilion due to the local Council Elections being held in the Village Hall.  Please come and have a drink and discuss the proposed Resolutions which are:-

The NFWI calls on the Government and local authorities to increase subsidies and work in partnership with bus companies and community transport operators to enable an adequate provision of services.

The NFWI urges WI members to attend routine screening to take action to raise awareness of the importance of cervical screening, and address barriers to attendance to help eradicate cervical cancer.

All potential members are welcome.
