A veritable herd of Crowlas & Ludgvan members descended on the Hall for Cornwall today for this year’s Annual Council Meeting.
Guest speaker was Mandy Hickson, a former RAF fighter pilot, who gave us a highly entertaining and inspirational talk.
But the highlight for us was seeing Alison Latham receive the West Briton Cup from NFWI Chair Janice Langley! The West Briton Cup is awarded annually to a first-year press officer – we’re all so proud of Alison for getting the recognition she deserves for her hard work and the brilliant press coverage we’ve received!
The winner of the centenary baton cushion competition was announced during the meeting and, sadly, Sue Knights’s cushion didn’t win. However, we all thought it was incredibly clever and we’d have been proud to see it chosen.
Have a look here at some of the cushions created by talented woman from all over Cornwall:
This was the last meeting led by outgoing CFWI Chair Kathy Reed, and she will be missed! She was given a big bouquet and a giant card signed by everyone at the meeting. It was also the last meeting for Treasurer (and Crowlas & Ludgvan WI member) Beth Marshall. We congratulate Beth on her years of hard work as Treasurer – those will be big shoes to fill!
You’ll be getting a full report about the Annual Council Meeting from delegate Hilary Elliff at our meeting on 20 October, so don’t miss it!
