June Meeting - Herstory

Thursday, 10 July 2014 § 0

For our June meeting we had the chance to look back at the history  of the WI as well as taking a trip down memory lane to look back at the history  of our very own Buns & Roses.

Lucy gave the group an informative talk on how and when the WI was formed (It was founded in 1897 in Ontario Canada fact fans but in the UK it was founded in 1915 at Llanfair PG, on Anglesey, North Wales).

We also looked back at the history of Denman College and how it was formed as well as the West Yorkshire federation which was founded back in 1983 – with the first meeting of the new federation being held at a coffee shop in Pudsey as the new offices weren’t ready. After that we moved forward to five years ago when our very own Buns & Roses was formed upstairs at Mojos by Zoe, Gloria, Georgiana and Hayley.
