On a very blustery June day, Lancashire Federation enjoyed an interesting NFWI Annual Meeting at the Echo Arena.
In her final Annual Meeting as Chair, Janice Langley outlined plans for the launch of the 'Members Only' Website due to go live on 12th June 2017.
There were passionate and occasionally emotional debates on the two chosen resolutions, 'Alleviating Loneliness' and ' Plastic Soup - Keep Microplastic fibres out of our Oceans'. Both resolutions were passed at the Meeting.
Keynote speakers were Jo Fairley, Founder of Green & Blacks Chocolate and Suzy Dent from Dictionary Corner, Countdown.
Our own Catherine Rae from Stalmine WI accompanied members singing Jerusalem and also entertained the audience prior to the meeting with a variety of music. Well done Catherine
The meeting concluded with members dancing in the aisles to a Live Band who performed several hits including an uplifting performance of 'All you need is Love'.
