May meeting and AGM

Millie Moon were at our very first meeting and they came back to join us for our first birthday.

This time we learned how to do English paper piecing which, for me at least, has proven to be addictive!

This meeting we also held our first AGM.

Storm, Emma and Laura gave a review of the year covering the meetings we've held (astronomy, clay modelling, wreath making, midwifery, wine and cheese, self defence and crafty fabric makes to mention a few), the fundraising we've done and how we have worked to support local causes and businesses.

We believe in being an active, community focused and ethical part of Frome and we feel like we have achieved that.

The accounts for 2012 were also available to view.

Gilly kindly gave the officers some lovely flowers - thank you Gilly!

We then voted on the officers and committee for 2013. They are:

President - Storm Fagan
Treasurer - Emma Rodger
Secretary - Laura Francis

Gilly Newell
Rachel Lloyd
Tina Meldon
Ella Richardson
Beverley Russell-Edney

Thanking the outgoing committee members for all their help and support over the last year:

Sophie Shields
Tamsin Westbrook
Lara Hain

We raised the proposed resolution for the NFWI which is to support our high streets. There was no argument opposing this resolution. Therefore Frome WI are supporting this resolution.

Once we had covered the AGM we got on with hand stitching and, as always, being slightly in awe of the Millie Moon ladies' crafty skill.

Thank you to all our members and the ladies who have visited and supported us. If you have any feedback - good or bad - please let us know by emailing WI.frome@gmail.com.
