February’s Ashover WI meeting was a lively one with a fascinating presentation on Biometrics by Paul Newsham.

It was also the end of a six-month campaign, where members have been donating new ‘smalls’ for women and children in third world countries. The scheme, launched by the Derbyshire Federation of WIs, aims to bring dignity and protection to as many vulnerable women and children as possible. One of last year’s speaker groups, Specsavers, took the scheme to heart and offered to collect in their Chesterfield Branch and WI Member, Barbara Archer, recently went along on behalf of Ashover WI to thank them for their efforts, and collect their donations.
