It was an inspirational talk that uplifted and encouraged us to follow our dreams, whatever they may be.
After the talk we had a book swap, with members bringing books they no longer wanted to swap for new ones. The books were all wrapped up, with three word descriptions on tags, so it was pot luck what you got. It was like Christmas all over again and everybody went away with a new title to try. It was such a success we're going to do it again later in the year.
It was the first time we had to vote on the WI resolutions and Margaret Colllingwood, our advisor, came to give us guidance. The resolutions inspired a passionate debate and symbolised the important role the WI plays in campaigning in the UK. It was great to see everyone really engaged with the issues.
