Best practice award for Singing for Memory at SIGBI Conference Cardiff October 2017

Ten members attended the SIGBI Conference and  had a very interesting and sociable conference which ended  in us wilnning the Best Practice Award in the Health Section for Singing for Memory.  Well done to everyone , particularly Janice! We heard about other club’s projects and from  inspiring keynote speakers including Michael Kaufman talking about the causes of male violence against women. Two  inspirational speakers were Mandy Hickson one of the first female RAF Tornado pilots and Dame Katherine Grainger, Olympic Gold medallist. We also saw the installation of  our new Regional President  Maureen Howarth  and  Federation President Sue Biggs who is from our Region. An excellent Conference, renewing friendships, making new friends and returning inspired!
