March Meeting and AGM
Wednesday 24th March, 8pm LIVE
In March we will hear LIVE ON ZOOM from Teresa Kokiet from the Women's prison, HMP Foston Hall.
Teresa will be talking us through life at the prison for the women there and telling us about their plans to set up the Foston Foxes WI. It promises to be fascinating and hopefully we will hear how we might be able to support their WI in the future.
It is also AGM time; we will be keeping the admin to a minimum with just a few points of business to take care of! It's also time for subs after our 3 month subs holiday, so look out for emails from your Treasurer.
