Thank you so much for attending and contributing towards a very positive and exciting FOWs meeting last night.

Liza Williams is going to research and begin the process of becoming a registered charity

We are going to postpone the ball until March – Amy has already got back to me with dates – 9th or 23rd March?  I wondered whether 23rd would give people a little bit more time? Thoughts please?
