Hello Everyone

We hope you were able to enjoy and make the most of the weather in the last week.
What a difference !!! compared to last year with the 'Beast from the East'.

Our year of celebrating the Centenary of women's suffrage, then and now, with visits to
exhibitions and rallys, culminated with Dr Helen Pankhurst CBE, writer and international
women's right activist, the great granddaughter of  Suffragette Leader, Emmeline Pankhurst, 
as our guest speaker in February. A wonderful evening.

We thank all the our speakers who have inspired us over this year of celebrations.

The 100 Banner which we designed and took on the March4Women last year has been
seen, admired around the country and displayed in the Royal Albert Hall and the
Pankhurst Centre, Manchester.  It is now back with us.

This month our speaker and demonstrator, Peter Railton from Green-Fingers, talks about
the garden with preparations in getting our gardens and house plants looking their best 
with tips on how to achieve the look.

Please arrive promptly for a 7pm start and remember to bring your coffee cups to
enjoy a brew, tea, coffee, cake and chat.

Looking forward to seeing you then.

Bye for now.

Hello Everyone

February has arrived and seems confused weather wise.

Nearly everyone seems to be affected by the bug going around including
my broadband network which has been down for a number of days

To cut to the chase, we are excited to welcome Dr Helen Pankhurst,
Writer and International Women's Right Activist, great granddaughter of
Emmeline Pankhurst, British Suffragette, to our meeting this Wednesday,
6th February as our Guest Speaker.
We are looking forward to welcoming members and guests along to hear Helen speak.
Her book, 'Deeds not Words' will be on sale which she will be signing.

Our usual catch up with each other over tea, cakes, coffee, biscuits and chatter a must.

Please arrive promptly for 7pm start. Seated by 7.15pm for our Speaker to begin.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
