We all met up in the Village Hall on the 7th April to listen to Dr. Janet Pennington talk about Witches, Warlocks and Wellingtons. Basically Janet is an expert on everything historical about old buildings and how to protect the home from visitations of Witches etc. and protect the home from lightning. She is also an expert on very old graffiti found in houses, public houses etc.
The next meeting on the 5th May will be when we discuss the WI resolution that will be voted on at the WI Annual Meeting in Liverpool in June. The Resolution that we will be voting on is:-
‘Women & girls presenting with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are going undiagnosed. The NFWI calls on the government and funding bodies to fund research into the female presentation of ASD & ADHD, and for action to be taken to improve the diagnosis process for women and girls, to ensure that they are equipped to better manage these conditions and do not suffer in silence. The NFWI further calls on WI members to raise awareness within their WIs of the issues facing women and girls with ASD & ADHD.’
I look forward to seeing you all there. If anyone needs any information on our W.I., please contact Ruth Isaacs on 01403 785402.
