Nature Walk – Reminder – It’s tomorrow

Guided Evening Walk round Kempton Nature Reserve, Wednesday 19th May. 6:45 meet for 7 o’clock walk. Meet at reserve entrance (next to Linden Bennett School).

Jane Clarke, the reserve’s manager, will be our guide. The pathway is easy walking all the way round with one gentle incline. I estimate we will be about an hour.

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.
