UNITARIAN WOMEN’S LEAGUE AT THE GA
The Women’s League enjoyed a cup of tea or coffee in the Pavilion Room before their AGM and a talk by Jonathan Roberts of Smile Train UK. Business matters proceeded with speed enabling all to be completed within the one hour slot. Anne Gemmell did a sterling job in chairing the whole meeting both as President and Past President. There is no President this year but Joyce Ashworth is President Elect. Susan Holt presented the accounts which are in good order. Susan Wildman was given an exotic plant and the honour of becoming an Honorary Vice President as she is standing down as Secretary in June. The post will be taken over by Joan McFarlane.
Anne Gemmell presented a cheque for £8,470 to John McCarthy of the UK Sepsis Trust, the League’s project for the past year It was good to see John on a new mobility scooter. He was delighted with the cheque.
