Resolutions for 2019.  Two Resolutions were passed at the Annual Meeting in Bournemouth in June. One highlights the ongoing decline in rural bus services and the other calls for a raising of awareness of the importance of cervical cancer screening. Details of campaigning on the Resolutions are in the NFWI mailing and in WI Life.

The Membership Committee is made up of your Federation Officers, WI Advisers, trainee WI Advisers and Membership Assistants. The WI Advisers are WI members who have a particular interest in the WI and who have been trained in all aspects of the running of a WI by National Trainers

Your WI Advisers are: Lesley Holdway (Broughton Gifford), Elma Lawer (Kingston Langley),  and Christine Walker (Winterslow & Firsdown).
Membership Assistants, Jenny Coates (Devizes Evening),  Ray Tetlow (Cricklade)

We are pleased to welcome Gillian Hinton (Christian Malford & Foxham) as Membership Assistant, together with Amy Middleton (Whiteparish) who is a Trainee WI Adviser.

WI Advisers have the interests of all the WIs in Wiltshire at heart and offer help and support in any way possible. They visit every WI on a regular basis and are always only a phone call away. They are constantly looking at areas where a new WI may prove popular so if you know of an area that might have possibilities, please let us know at WI House.

If you are interested in finding out more about the work of the Membership Committee, then please contact WI House.
