May 2020

Today is the 1st anniversary of Max & Keira’s Law which gives presumed consent for organ donation unless ‘opted out’.

This concept was a WI Resolution in 1994 and in 2014, Staffordshire’s Standon & Cotes Heath WI’s Resolution called for everyone to make their wishes known about organ donation and to encourage others to do so, too.

EARTH DAY – 22ND APRIL

Earth Day started in the US & Canada in 1970 and is now celebrated world-wide. It aims to promote the protection of the environment and raise awareness of the fragility of our planet. Many of our Resolutions support this concept.

If we can all reduce our impact on our world by a small amount, the overall result will be huge.

SOS – HONEYBEES

Honeybees may struggle at this time of year with cool conditions and few flowers around. If you see an exhausted bee, mix 2 tablespoonfuls of granulated sugar with one of water and leave in a saucer near the bee. For the long term, sow some wild flower seeds now. They will appreciate them later in the year and so will you ! You could even win the Garden Festival Trophy competition with a photo of your wild flowers….
