WI members have selected two new mandates at the NFWI Annual Meeting in Bournemouth.

96% of delegates voted to call on the government and local authorities to address the decline in local bus services.

97% of delegates voted in favour of ‘don’t fear the smear’, calling on WI members to take action to raise awareness of the importance of cervical screening.

Both topics were debated at the Annual Meeting on 5 June, following the year-long democratic resolution process, which was attended by over 4,000 WI members from across the UK. Both topics will be the organisation’s campaigning focus going forward this year.
