Federation Annual Meeting

Img 0934 copy

The Federation Annual Meeting will once again be at Trinity Park, Ipswich. Our afternoon guest speaker is Graham Walton, “My Life with Seven Women!” Graham will be joined by his wife, Janet who will have copies of her book “Six Little Miracles” available for sale at the end of the meeting. It is hard to believe that the Walton Sextuplets are into their thirties with little ones of their own. Graham tells his hilarious and unique story from six babies through television shows and now relative retirement!

The morning session will be the usual mix of WI business and guest speakers with a local feel, as well as news and information from our own subcommittees. Country Markets, SEFWI Sales and the Fairtrade Foundation will be offering you their goods and in our exhibition area we will have a selection of organisations to give information to members on a one to one basis. There will also be the raffle, Denman Dip and the meeting is an ideal opportunity to renew your 200 Club membership.

We will not, this year, be collecting toiletries and other items for British Humanitarian Aid as the charity is having so much trouble transporting all the donations to the Ukraine, they have had to stop collecting for a while. But we are making enquiries elsewhere so will let you know if there is anything you can bring via your secretary.

Everything is on the flat, there are plenty of toilets and emergency exits are everywhere! All are advised to bring a packed lunch, but coffee, tea and light snacks will be available to purchase on the day. Delegates have a free ticket, but all other seats will be £7.50. Order tickets through your secretary. Once 700 tickets have been taken, the remaining 100 will be available at a reduced price due to being either at the side of the platform or at the back where visibility is reduced. Ticket allocation will be 19th January, after which any remaining tickets will be sold on a first come first served basis.
