70th Anniversary – Writing Competition


The winners!

What a very special evening we had Tuesday 14 May.  We had invited the winners of our 2019 writing competition to attend our meeting and receive their prizes. It was lovely to meet the winners, Katy Mann (overall winner), Yasmin Jones (U18 winner) and Charlotte Oliver (Highly Commended) but what made the evening so special was the winners reading their essays, about an inspiring woman, to us. They read their entries beautifully and we were very moved by them, some of us shed a few tears when we heard about these strong, brave and resilient women. What a privilege it was to hear about them!

Katy Mann- overall winner
