Jeanne and Dorothy were delighted to accept the position of Joint President for the second year running whilst Pam accepted the position of President Elect.
Members enjoyed an Installation Dinner at Sparth House and reflected on the successes of the previous year whilst looking forward to the next twelve months.
Friendship is our theme as the club has planned a programme of service and fund raising events combined with social evenings and fun.
We value the friendships we have made over the years and welcome any new members to join our small but lively group.
We hope to make ourselves known in the community as a group who is active in local affairs and charities but also concerned about world issues especially about the rights and health of women and children.
We will be supporting HARV, the local domestic abuse refuge, Purple Teardrop, the anti trafficking campaign, The local Contact Centre, Mary’s Meals and Gambian maternity health care. We will also be working towards environment sustainability, economic empowerment and increased learning opportunities.
We hope members will enjoy the activities and friendship of the club at the same time knowing that we have improved the lives of women and children at home and abroad.
The club also supports the other charities in our Programme Action agenda.
New members are always welcome so please contact Dorothy at firstname.lastname@example.org more information.
Thankyou to all those who joined us for our 58th Charter celebration dinner at the New Drop in Ribchester.

Lucy Annabel entertained the diners with two songs from her repertoire. Although not yet a teenager she confidently held the attention of her audience who were delighted with her singing.
Seven Presidents from other clubs in the Region were among the guests and everyone agreed that it had been a very enjoyable evening.
