Members Monthly Memo – April 2018

A big “Hello” to our new WI in Essex, Baddow Bees WI. We wish them well!

A sad farewell to Stondon Massey WI, who suspended in February.

Recent advice from the Charity Commission suggests that for those WIs who are CC registered and complete their returns online, all WI Trustees should hold the password to their WIs CC online site not just the Treasurer.

I hope all Annual Meetings are running smoothly – please do speak to your allocated Adviser, or the WI Office, if you experience any problems.

Best wishes, Jane B.

Time To Say Goodbye!

Sadly, the Autumn County Meeting was the time for us to announce a resignation from our wonderful WI Advisor team. This was long standing WI Advisor, Liz Buxton. We shall be extremely sad to see her go as she has put in enormous amounts of work in supporting many of our WIs over many years. We are sure that many of you will have very fond and fun memories of your times with Liz and are as appreciative of all of her efforts as we are at FEWI.
