Anne Rodwell (Great Doddington Evening WI)

As I write this month, I am wondering if the weather is going to settle down into warm Summer any time soon. I hope by the time you read this, it has improved!

I have spent this morning at WI House, tidying the garden, sweeping up moss fallen from the roof and weeding. There is still more to do, but it was enjoyable being outside with friends and having a socially distanced coffee and home made sultana muffin. Thanks Chris! If anyone would like to join us do get in touch, any help would be gratefully appreciated.

The past fifteen months have been difficult for so many reasons, and at recent Board meetings we have been considering the effect of the pandemic on the finances of this Federation and our WIs. As the Government’s roadmap is hopefully allowing more meeting of friends, we have decided to re-visit the Fun with a Fiver Scheme some of you may remember back in 2008. It was run as a Challenge Trophy competition and proved not only to be a great success in raising funds but also as a way of bringing people together to have some fun. You will find more details about it on page 4 of this newsletter.
