The issue being taken to the WI AGM this year is about the decline of our high streets and town centres. This is an important issue that many people feel strongly about and the WI have produced a briefing to help you all make an informed decision about how to vote.

The resolution states:

The NFWI notes with concern the continuing decline of our high streets and the damaging effect this has on local communities. We call on every member of the WI to support their local shops and make the high street their destination of choice for goods and services. We call on decision-makers to work collectively, at all levels, to help bring an end to the decline of our high streets and to ensure that high streets flourish and provide a focal point for local communities.

Our WI will be voting at our AGM on Tues 28th May, so if you get a chance to read the briefing before then, that would be great.
