Member’s Day

Our annual Member’s Day was held at Spotlight in Broxbourne and there was a very happy atmosphere, 140 members enjoyed the day, spending time chatting to friends, browsing the stalls and being entertained in the morning and afternoon.

We were delighted that Katherine Kear, National NAFAS Chairman, came to spend the day with us. In the morning members had the opportunity to ask Katherine questions about current issues in NAFAS. She followed this with an excellent talk about the origins of well known sayings.
We then enjoyed a buffet lunch before watching a demonstration by Lucy Ellis a National Demonstrator. Her title was ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ and all her beautiful designs interpreted diamond songs e.g. ‘Diamonds are Forever’ and ‘Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend’. By the end of her demonstration the stage was full of sparkle and colour.

Our next Area event at Broxbourne will be on 22nd November for our AGM, lunch and a demonstration by Tracey Griffin. We hope you will join us.

Best wishes
Carolyn Cranswick
Home Counties Area Chairman
