Here's what's happening this month at Gloucester Rd WI

July 2020

Antiques

Do you have a masterpiece hanging on your walls? A family heirloom you've always wondered about? 


For July's meeting we welcome Lisa Lloyd, Antiques Expert

Lisa will talk to us about all things antiques and select five member treasures to assess and discuss -- just like on the Antiques Roadshow!

But we'll need your photos and stories before the meeting, so please email photos of your item and a little story about it to info@gloucesterroadwi.org by Tuesday 14 July.
Please note: we won't have chance to talk about everyone's so yours might not be chosen.

We'd love to see as many of our members as possible online so will send instructions on how to get onto the meeting (via Zoom) to members only nearer the time, by email and on our Facebook Group.

Find out more about Lisa here on the BBC website or handofgloryantiques.com

NFWI News

Big news! Our proposed resolution which was due to be voted on during the NFWI annual meeting has been accepted as one of this year’s resolutions! The official wording is:

There are tens of thousands of victims of modern slavery hiding in plain sight in the UK. Modern slavery has severe consequences for the health and mental wellbeing of survivors. The NFWI calls on the Government to protect victims of modern slavery in the first instance and deliver longer term support to help them rebuild their lives. We call on our members to raise awareness of the prevalence of modern slavery throughout society and to campaign to defeat it.

As the NFWI Annual Meeting was cancelled the two resolutions due to be discussed were not able to be debated or voted on by delegates. So the NFWI Board of Trustees decided that in these exceptional circumstances, the results of the shortlist selection process was used instead.
