Thursday Opening Ceremony

Opening Ceremony

The flags of the Federation were carried into conference by the Army Cadets of Greater Manchester – and there was hardly a dry eye in the house! 

Opening CeremonyGreetings were sent from too many important people to include here – just to say Her Majesty the Queen topped the bill!

President Jackie officially opened the conference and welcomed us to the bees of Manchester – how many will people spot as they go around the city?

Joanne Wagstaffe gave us a fabulous close to the evening singing great songs like Downtown, and Somewhere Over the Rainbow with her powerful yet sweet voice how many more hidden talents are there in the Federation Office?

What a terrific start to conference!
