Every member can contribute to the success of our WI, you do not have to be a member of the Committee to get involved. Numerous jobs need doing on a regular basis from setting up the Hall, tidying away, meeting and greeting, helping with baking, looking out for each other, lift sharing etc. Thank you to everyone who regularly helps out in the background.
WHITELEY WAGs WI PRESIDENT’S REPORT 2020
When I first took over the role of President of Whiteley WAGs WI in May 2019, little did I know all our lives were going to change completely from March 2020. Coronavirus or Covid 19 as it is now known, has taken over the whole world. This is something that is quite unbelievable when you stop to think about it all in our 21st Century.
I am now known as “Madam Zoom” at home, which is where you will see me, sitting in front of my computer, instead of standing up in front of you in the school hall. As you know we started our very first Zoom Virtual WI Meeting in June followed by one in July and another in August and September will be our Virtual Annual Meeting this year.
Unfortunately, at the moment, I do not know when we will be able to meet up again in person in the school hall. We will continue to have our monthly virtual WI Meetings for the foreseeable future.
We will also continue with the Book Club and Craft Club via Zoom. If you have not had a chance to join us yet, please login in and see what we get up to. Keep an eye on the Newsletter for more information. Our Zoom logins are always sent out via email. We will however, endeavour to continue to offer you a great variety of topics and subjects. Fortunately, we have also been able to re-book several Speakers for 2021 that we had to cancel this year.
I would like now to thank all our Committee for their unstinting help and support and enthusiasm over the past year. Without their input we would not be as successful as we are, in offering you, our members the sort of meetings that we do and will continue to do whether we are on Zoom or in the school hall. I would also like to thank Chrissy very much for being our Treasurer since May 2017 and I know it is not an easy task keeping the books! I would like to welcome Cindy as our new Treasurer and thank her for taking on the mantle of our finances, especially as we will have no income until
1 April 2021. My thanks also go to Avril, our Secretary and Jane my Vice President for supporting me since May 2019 and also Sue Daish, who has recently stood down as my 2nd Vice President, but remains on our Committee and continues with the Craft Club. Unfortunately, we will be saying farewell to a few of our Committee members, Chrissy, Hayley and Sharon and thank you for all your help and support too. It will not be a total goodbye, as they will still be members of Whiteley WAGs WI.
We will all go into 2021 with our best foot or should I say feet, forward.
