Dolls of Hampton

Lovely to see so many of you on Zoom this week. I do miss a good natter!

Some of you asked for more information about The Dolls of Hampton project. The Dolls of Hampton is a community art project designed to make Hampton smile during lockdown. Dolls made of discarded doll parts and other found materials are being displayed around Hampton for people to see as they walk around, a bit like a treasure hunt. People are invited to take a photo and then share their photo with the hashtag #dollsofhampton.

February Social!

Make yourself a cuppa,

or pour yourself a wine!

Drop in for a natter,

we hope to see you online.

Tuesday 9th February at 8 o’clock on Zoom – WI Social.

Look out for an envelope coming through your letterbox this weekend. It will contain the Zoom log in and bits for a little valentine’s ice breaker activity. In addition to the contents of the envelope you will need scissors and a glue stick or stapler.

Stay safe. Looking forward to see you on Tuesday evening.

The Women’s Institute is democratic and member-led, and the resolutions process is unique in putting members at the heart of decisions about our campaign activity. Every issue that we campaign on stems directly from a resolution put forward by members and adopted at the Annual Meeting. WI members have a unique opportunity to turn a concern into a national campaign every year, backed by the whole of the WI.

A resolution is a call for change on a current issue in society. Once a resolution has been adopted at the Annual Meeting, the Public Affairs Department turns it into a campaign. Through national and local campaigning, members play a key role in achieving change on important issues.
