Welcome to 2019!

After the joys of the Christmas Party, we all need to calm down, so this month we have a presentation from 
Diane Rodgers, Holistic Massage Therapist
Massage for Wellbeing.

She will speak on the benefits of massage for physical, mental and emotional health. She will also give a demo and tips on how we can share this with family and friends, and there will be an opportunity to practice together in the workshop. 

We will also be processing this year's membership forms and handing out membership cards, and finally, we will be thinking about this year's resolutions. Add in time to chat and catch up on news and it's going to be a busy meeting!

Membership: forms are available on-line. You can now pay this month's subscription by BACS in advance. If you pay online, please do so as soon as possible, so that Sally has time to process all the payments, and remember to put who you are on the payment. Whether you decide to pay by BACS, cheque or cash, please bring this year's membership form with you to the meeting.

At the beginning of the meeting, members of the Committee will be giving very brief descriptions of each of the resolutions proposed this year. You will have a chance to discuss them during the evening and we will ask you to vote at the end. We will collate all the votes and send the totals to Avon for inclusion in the national figures. It's one member, one vote and all votes get counted individually (i.e. we don't just tell them which resolution got most votes from Clifton WI). 

The resolutions up for discussion this year are:
1. Improving Plant Biosecurity in the UK
2. Trees - Improving the Natural Landscape
3. Pelvic Floor Education
4. Suffering in Silence; why we need to end the taboo around menstrual health
5. A Call against the Decline in Local Bus Services
6. Don't Fear the Smear


We are hoping to migrate to a new website in the near future. Apologies that this blog is not currently well-maintained. We hope to do better soon!
