Two resolutions had been put forward for the NFWI Annual Meeting and the pros and cons of these were discussed and will be voted on at the next meeting. One resolution was on avoiding food waste and the other on providing facilities for carers when dementia sufferers are in hospital.
Ros Campbell very much involved us in her talk on 'Looking After Yourself. She reiterated that we are each responsible for goQd health in ourselves. Regular exercise at least three times a week is important to keep muscles toned and to build up strength and stamina. A healthy diet (breakfast being the most important meal of the day!) and the habit of dividing a plate of food into three was recommended: half of vegetables and a quarter each of protein and carbohydrates. Understanding your own stress level is also important.
We then tucked into a delicious birthday cake made by Kellie from Kellies Kakes and sang 'Happy Birthday to the Queen'!
The 'Flower of the Month Competition' was won by Pam Kaley, 2nd Phyllis Ely, 3rd Marcia Williams, and the Competition for 'A Healthy Eating Recipe' was won by Pearl Woodyer, 2nd Marcia Williams and 3rd Pam Kaley.
