    When is this

  2. Sandra Buck says:

    We’ve arrived safely

  3. Lucy Lincoln says:

    It’s so pleasing to see the local community taking an interest in such an important problem which is only going to get worse. Cornwall will be affected severely due to its coastal location and this will have an adverse impact on tourism. It’s better to work together now to come up with an action plan for the stormier weather, rising sea levels and drier summers and try to minimize the damage done to Cornwall as an exposed peninsula.

  4. Jean Hoare says:

    Please add Pensilva W.I to the list of W. I s with a Facebook page.

  5. Pippa Stilwell says:

    It’s a great idea to write a letter to your MP during the Week of Action. You can point out that action on climate change is a key campaigning issue for the WI nationally, and also stress that Cornwall offers the potential for producing renewable energy from wind, wave, sunshine and geothermal heat, and ask them to press the Government to support these industries rather than subsidising fossil fuels or nuclear power. In addition, much of the housing stock in Cornwall is damp and poorly insulated, and concerted action on boosting energy efficiency would improve many people’s health and quality of life, whilst reducing carbon emissions. Most of our Cornwall MPs are already keen to promote these ideas, and hearing from us will only help to strengthen their hand.

    Brillant ladies. Good for you.

  7. Lyn says:

    You didn’t show the entries for the WI Group Staged Exhibit on the theme of Poldark! I have some photos if you come back to me. I also have a photo of a WI Member who won a cup and lots Of firsts, Ali Menary, with one of her winning entries.

    • Cornwall Federation of WIs says:

      Where was this, Lyn? I don’t think there was a Royal Cornwall Show competition on the theme of Poldark!

    Thank you ladies for your company and making it an enjoyable event. Thank you also to the staff at Knightor for adding to our enjoyment and providing an excellent ploughmans lunch.

  10. Beth Marshall says:

    ‘Cheekily wondering’, nothing cheeky about this request. The WI community is about community …. supporting our community and it’s facilities. Cornwall Hospice Care is a great cause which sadly touches the lives of many. I wish them well.

    My mixed media piece has been accepted by South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts to be part of their Open exhibition in Exeter!

    Exeter Castle, Tuesday 14th to Saturday 25th November 2017.

    • Cornwall Federation of WIs says:

      That is fantastic news, Jennifer! Make sure you get some pictures of yourself at the exhibition to send to WI Life (and to County News).

    Dear CFWI,
    On the Cornwall Council website the timetable for this recycling survey is given as
    1. Oct 31 st deadline for submitting survey.
    2 Jan 2018 consideration of survey
    3 Feb 2018 vote on new Biffa contract

    I think it is probably too late based on the above timetable to fill out survey.
    I personally think Cornwall Councils new recycling collection plans are excellent and fit in with my household waste needs.

  19. Beth Marshall says:

    Thank you. Oh what a lovely picture .

  20. Mary Quinney says:

    Hi, do we have to pre- book the soup and roll for the Gardening Chalkenge Day?

    • Cornwall Federation of WIs says:

      You do need to specify whether or not you’d like lunch (on the booking form) but there’s no need to pay until the day.

  21. Beth Marshall says:

    Please do think about joining CWT, the two 70 year old here, love going on some of their events, you thoroughly enjoy yourself and see things that you would ordinarily miss.

  22. Beth Marshall says:

    Throughout the UK the NT is also celebrating this centenary in various properties. Could visiting such a property be counted as an activity to increase knowledge ?

    • Gill Druce says:

      Mawnan WI will be visiting three National Trust properties in Cornwall this year to see their Women and Power exhibitions and we certainly take the view that these are educational trips!

  23. Beth Marshall says:

    Great idea. Is CFWI holding an event at Chy Noweth ?

  24. Nina Vague says:

    Hello there!
    I live in Gulval Penzance, not far from Land’s End, and would be delighted to accommodate Natalia if she is heading this way! It would be wonderful to help such a brave lady raise funds and awareness, after the loss of her beloved little girl.
    Please put my name forward if I can help, or let me know who to contact. I will also talk to my own Gulval WI.
    Good luck and sincere best wishes

  26. Caroline Toland says:

    I have a WI book of recipes which includes several Ayshe to make the best Cornish pasty, unfortunately some of the ladies who wrote those recipes are nolonger with us.
    You are more than welcome to have a look.
    Kind regards

    • Cornwall Federation of WIs says:

      Thanks, Caroline! Perhaps you could get in touch with the contact details listed in the post to see if they’re interested?

  27. Jean Hoare says:

    A big Thank you from Pensilva W .I to you both for a lovely informative evening.We can’t wait to try some of your recipes.

  28. Sandy Adcock says:

    My friend Judy and I had such a fun time on Friday. We can’t wait for the next session. It is lovely to be able to meet other WI ladies from groups that we wouldn’t get to visit due to the distance in travel, Cornwall being such a long county. We were made to feel so welcome and included in all that was going on.

    The food was lovely too, such hard work for you all.

    • Cornwall Federation of WIs says:

      We’re so glad you enjoyed it, Sandy. You’re right – Cornwall’s shape doesn’t always make it easy for us to get together.

    Hi Cal
    I saw your note in the visitor’s book at the hut up on the cliffs just south of Welcome mouth on 15th May. What an evil day for paddle boarding. The surfers at Welcome Mouth couldn’t believe what you are doing. I’m doing an End to End on foot. I’ll keep a look out for you. When you get to John o Groats remember Geoff runs the butty van on the quay side.
    All the best

    • Cornwall Federation of WIs says:

      Hi, Patrick. This isn’t Cal’s website, so if you want to get in touch or leave a message with her, I’d suggest going directly there (see link in above post). Thanks!

    Thank you CFWI for the photo’s of the RCS and of the winners of the various cups and shields. All of the exhibits were again outstanding, Cornwall ladies are so talented. Personally, I thought the WI marque was looking wonderful again this year. I love the little tweaks you give it each year. So well done all of you. I miss being part of the team at CFWI, hopefully I will be back with you when my little dog is more able to be left at home for longer. Looking forward to 2019 now.

    At 62 I have just retired from a District Nurses post. How I had time to work I’ll never know! My hobbies are our pets….a dog and three guineapigs, Motorhoming, visiting National Trust and English Heritage properties, going to the cinema, knitting, beginners patchwork and baking.

    I am very concerned reading yesterday’s Daily Mail stating the Trustees of Denman college Oxfordshire plan to sell the WI’s educational home.
    Several County WI’s suggest selling their multi million £ offices in London, not purchased many years ago and relocate everything at Denman.
    It’s such a pity we are not in normal circumstances to meet and discuss the Grenville groups opinion. Would it be an idea to try and let Members know the situation. Personally I feel the Trustees should be prevented from any decision until all groups are functioning again even if it’s some time ahead. Hoping all keep safe.

      Unfortunately, this matter is an NFWI concern, not something the Cornwall Federation has any influence with. However, there were some documents sent by NFWI – including some pretty comprehensive FAQs – which clearly address your query about relocating to Denman. I’m afraid that is not a viable option. Did your WI cascade the NFWI documents to you? If you do have further questions, I would suggest you contact NFWI.

    It was great to meet up with my fellow trustees again.

  147. Sylvia Ronan says:

    So, then what happens when these buildings have been reported?

  148. Sylvia Ronan says:

    Wonderful News ~ Thank You, see you there Xxx

    Well done and thanks to Janet for sharing her photos. Now we have a record of Sarah’s talk, not that we are likely to forget it in a hurry! She was delightful.
    The videos of the sub-committee members will help greatly with my report.
    Well done Helen for the montage.

    Thanks all.

    From Sandy Adcock

  152. Phil Young says:

    Please can this be published somewhere other than on face book and the website. I need it in a printable version so I can send it to my members who are not on line.

    • Cornwall Federation of WIs says:

      I’m not sure what you mean by ‘printable’. Videos cannot be printable. Can they? As for the text, you can copy and paste into a Word document and then print it for your members.

  153. Pam Selley says:

    Welcome to our new Trustees, I look forward to working with you.

  154. Doc Carter says:

    Just want to said so sorry to hear of your passing, I will remember the time when you where in Washington, D.C. Rest In Peace 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

  160. Ann Munford says:

    Painting with coffee is clever! I’ve often thought with this Lockdown I would like to paint ….. but where to get the kit?? Well I have printing paper and there always a jar of coffee in the kitchen.

  161. Liz Baker says:

    Thank you Sue, from Trevone WI

  162. Congratulations Hayle WI.
    Keeping our groups interested, connected and involved has been a challenge since March. However it is well worth the effort and leap into using technology. Zoom has been a wonderful way to pull all these pieces together.
    Best wishes from Boscastle WI

  163. Gillian Schultz says:

    Congratulations Marhamchurch WI. What a beautiful visual account of your activities during a challenging year.

  164. Gillian Schultz says:

    Really terrific – well done Marhamchurch members.

  165. Gillian Schultz says:

    Well done Karrie. Your window is lovely.

  166. Sandra Nicholson says:

    We haven’t had a committee meeting for over a year. In the current COVID situation with some meeting venues still closed how are we expected to make decisions over this matter let alone relay it to our members. I would add that not many members are Zoom or computer happy!

    • Cornwall Federation of WIs says:

      Hello, Sandra. You can make decisions using email or – if your committee members don’t use computers – over the telephone. As long as you record any decisions you make, just as you would at a face-to-face committee meeting, you will be fine. If you tell us which WI you’re a member of, I can ask your WI Adviser to get in touch to give you some guidance and help.

  167. Jane Bennett says:

    Hi Sue, I have knitted a couple of Teddys for Tragedies but not sure where to send them.
    I would be most grateful if you could supply me with an address.
    Thank you Jane Bennett. Camborne.

  168. Julie Devine says:

    How lovely, I’d certainly like to order autumn bulbs. Can we pay by BACS (I no longer have a cheque book)?

  169. Rosemary Munford says:

    You’ve said just the right thing … thank you!

  170. Gillian Schultz says:

    I’d like to join the walks please. How do we register?

  171. Penny Picton says:

    Well done Sheila a very interesting piece.

  172. Rosemary Munford says:

    A HAPPY EASTER to you all at Chynoweth and to all our Cornish members. It’s been a difficult time but Fun is on the horizon!

  173. Sandra Nicholson says:

    Well done Barbara and Wendy, great effort. I am sure Wilcove and Torpoint will be very pleased.

  174. Joan Tall says:

    Well done to both W.I’s especially this year when news has been a little sparse.

    I would like to thank you for my lovely heart shaped cushion. I was given it when I had surgery at St Michael’s hospital. It’s not left my side. It’s so comfortable under my arm following my operation.
    Thank you so much

    I would love to thank you all for my heart cushion after breast surgery at st Michael’s.
