This month's meeting will be on Wednesday 18th May, 7-9pm in our usual venue, the Jubilee Hall, Millennium Centre, West Green Rd, next to St John Vianney RC Church.
This month, we're going to be discussing and voting on resolutions. There are two for our consideration, and it might be a good idea to read up on them ahead of time.
The first resolution is:
Avoid food waste, address food poverty
'The WI calls on all supermarkets to sign up to a voluntary agreement to avoid food waste, thereby passing surplus food on to charities thus helping to address the issue of increasing food poverty in the UK.'
More information and briefing notes are available here: https://www.thewi.org.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0005/168701/Avoid-food-waste,-address-food-poverty.pdf
The second is:
Appropriate care in hospitals for people with dementia
'We call upon HM Government and the NHS to provide facilities to enable carers to stay with people with Alzheimer's disease and dementia that have been admitted into hospital.'
More information and briefing notes are available here:
Following our discussion, we'll be voting on EACH resolution, and giving our votes to Sue to take to the National Annual Meeting in June.
We know that discussing resolutions isn't everyone's idea of a good time, so WE'RE HAVING PIZZA AND PROSECCO. You're welcome.
As always, there'll be cake - this month baked by Claudia.
Guests are welcome, as always, for £4. If you haven't been before, come and find out what we're about!
