Scottish Women’s Institute event update

Saturday 7th October, 5-6pm, Library Upstairs

There has been a change to the speakers at this event. We will now be joined by Anne Kerr,  who is a member in Ayrshire and is currently Senior Vice Chairman and Convenor of the Communications Committee,  Heather McDougall,  Secretary of Perth and Kinross Federation and a member of Cleish Institute in Perthshire, and Jay Hutchison, also a Perthshire member. 

Anne will talk about the organisation, its history and its vision for the future and the other two will chat about their roles.  They will all speak about the Centenary Cook Book, published to celebrate this significant anniversary.

There are still free tickets available at the library for this event. As there has been discussion recently on our local Facebook page about possibly starting up a Portobello branch of the SWI, this is an ideal opportunity to find out more about the organisation’s history and future.

Programme details

One hundred years after its inception at Longniddry, the SWI is still dedicated to friendship, learning and skill sharing. At this session the challenges and opportunities facing the organisation as it stands today will be discussed and we will take a glimpse inside the SWI’s celebratory Centenary Cook Book.

Chair: Linda Bradley      

Tickets for all Portobello Book Festival events are free and can be picked up from Portobello Library in Rosefield Avenue.
