On April 26th 2017, over 300 delegates, Standard Bearers and guests attended the Annual Conference of the Women's Section in Eastbourne.

Richard Field was our guest speaker, talking about the writing of Nancy Mitford. We also had speeches from the Worshipful Mayor of Eastbourne, Councillor Pat Hearne, and Lady Grey of Codnor. Updates were provided on both welfare and finances of the Women's Section.

It was Marilyn Humphry's last Conference as National Chairman, with Pat Chrimes taking over. Pat was previously National Vice-Chairman. Our new National Vice-Chairman is Karen Brown. Both have been involved with the Women's Section for a number of years, and have said how they are looking forward to the challenges ahead.

Conference also saw a change in the Central Committee members with Pat Ayres, Jan Buxton, Angela Swift and Vera Rodgers replacing Janet Salter, Fiona Havergal, Sheila Thompson and Kay Scase.

 

Conference voted to increase the membership fee to £10.00 for the 2017/18 membership year.
