May meeting saw some of us shaking our booty, and whittling our waists with hula- hoops. Shakira Taylor hula- hoop instructor showed us all manners of hula hooping
( Unfortunately , I was more than useless, but may purchase a hula- hoop to practise at home . )
We were hula-hooping with our waists, with our bottoms and arms.
Hula – hooping is a great way of keeping fit, as you break out in a sweat, and is a fantastic way of burning calories.

May meeting was also about the resolutions.
we listened to Laura and Helen present the arguments for and against both resolutions and decided to vote in favour of resolutions that will be voted on at the NFWI Annual meeting in June.
Both resolutions ( Appropriate care in hospitals for people with Dementia, and Avoid food waste, address food poverty, ) struck a cord with members, who had stories to share, in relation the dementia, and felt quite strongly about the amount of food thrown away, by the food industry. If the WI can make a difference, then that would be a bonus.
