Ladies' Circle Keen To Attract Off-Island Members

The Islands’ Ladies’ Circle AGM last Monday at Nornour Café voted in a new Chair.

Liz Duffy Griffiths takes that position with Vicky Perry serving as Vice Chair, Helen McGuiness as Treasurer and Barbara Moulson as President.

Liz says the organisation, which is open to women aged from 18 to 45, has a national motto of ‘Fun, Friendship and Fundraising’ and the group are thoroughly embracing this in Scilly.

The group’s annual cycle of business and social meetings starts on the first Friday of Gig Weekend and Liz says that offers a great opportunity for members to get out and socialise.

Liz wants more members and says they want to encourage participation from off-islanders with reduced membership fees as they appreciate that they can’t attend all of their meetings and events.

The group hopes to convene on Tresco & Bryher in the summer months.

Former Chairman Karen Johnson will be attending the Area and National conferences to represent the islands over the next 12 months.
