Update from NFWI on new Government Guidance – Click here for Important information regarding holding WI Meetings (September 2020)
Sent to WI Presidents/Secretaries
As you will have seen, earlier this week, the Government announced a ban on gatherings, indoors or outdoors, of more than six people in England. We have carefully studied the new rules, which are effective from Monday 14 September, as well as the full list of exemptions. We do not believe WI meetings fall under any of the exemptions, and therefore WI and Federation meetings with more than six people in attendance must be cancelled with immediate effect. The WI resuming meetings guidance is therefore suspended until further notice. We will be issuing new guidance next week, which will also include further information about some WI activities that may be covered by the exemption list.
Please share the attached announcement and information with your WIs.
