This is OFWI’s centenary year so the annual meeting took place at the Kassam Stadium.
Helen, as President, Annie and Anna all attended and Helen marched in the Banner Parade with our banner.
In the morning Emma Bridgewater gave a short talk about how she got started. Looking for a present for her mother she could not find a nice pair cups to signify her wish to sit down with her mum for a chat. So she followed up a contact in Stoke on Trent and the rest is history.
The afternoon speaker, Helen Sharman, was very inspiring with slides of her time in space. Proving that we can all do things if we want to enough and are willing to work hard.
We could also bring back a prize for Marion Symes from the OFWI centenary raffle!
