Hampton WI Monthly News Roundup
We also have to take a second vote on this years resolution from the two shortlisted resolutions
2016 Annual Meeting Resolutions
Every year members propose, and select, resolutions that could form the basis for NFWI campaigns and activity. Just under 100,000 members have taken part in the 2016 selection process so far. Over 40,000 members backed the following two resolutions. They will both now go forward to a vote at the Annual Meeting in Brighton on 11 June.
Avoid food waste, address food poverty
‘The WI calls on all supermarkets to sign up to a voluntary agreement to avoid food waste, thereby passing surplus food on to charities thus helping to address the issue of increasing food poverty in the UK.’
Appropriate care in hospitals for people with dementia
‘We call upon HM Government and the NHS to provide facilities to enable carers to stay with people with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia that have been admitted into hospital.’
More details are can be found here The WI Resolutions and also in the recent issue of WI Life which all members should have received by post.
