Those of you were at the Regal Theatre today will know what a good time the Annual Council Meeting was!
The Board of Trustees dressed up, each as a different decade, and talked a little bit about WI resolutions over the past 100 years.
Special guest NFWI Chair Lynne Stubbings gave a brilliant and inspirational talk. She highlighted some of the wonderful (and some wacky!) opportunities that have been afforded her since she opened various doors along her WI journey – from “collecting” Strictly dancers to meeting with royalty to taking on some very serious issues.
Our afternoon speaker, chef Valentina Harris, kept us all entertained with tales about her Italian family, olives groves, celebrity chefs, food served in ridiculous ways and her love of good honest food from the heart. Who’s going to attempt a nine-layer lasagne?
And what better way to end the day than with a confetti bomb to help us celebrate this special Centenary year!?
Thank you to our sterling Exhibitions team for putting on such a fantastic day, Edna Trudeon for the gorgeous flower displays, our WI Advisers for stewarding the event and all the staff at the Regal for being so helpful and supportive. Most of all, thank you to you, our members, for coming out and sharing the day with us!
We’ll see you back at the Regal for Spring Countdown on Wednesday 22nd April 2020!
