Covid 19 Statement

The health, wellbeing and safety of our members and office staff is the Federation’s first priority.  This is a fast-moving and fluid situation and we are carefully monitoring Government advice.  The Board of Trustees of the Norfolk Federation, therefore, took the decision to close the Federation’s Office at Evelyn Suffield House to everyone; members, Sub-Committees, the Board of Trustees and the public, for the foreseeable future.

In line with Government regulations, Norfolk WIs are not meeting in person, although some continue their monthly meetings online.  However, we recognise the importance to our mental health of staying in touch. This we are achieving by social media – Facebook, Instagram, etc. WI Secretaries are being kept abreast of Federation updates by email and share these with members.  Importantly, we are continuing to publish the Norfolk WI News Magazine, so that members still feel connected to the WI family.

We know how vital it is to keep our mental health as safe as our physical wellbeing.  The strength of the WI is in keeping an eye on each other, keeping in touch and keeping positive, never more so in uncertain times.  WI members know that they can draw on the support of their fellow members.
