Elections for those positions which are currently filled will, of course, be taking place as well.
The Speaker at our AGM this year is Dallas Barnes-Hughes and she will be speaking on Wedgwood.
Dallas has had an interest in Wedgwood for many years having worked for the company and then continued to study its history and processes. Please bring along any Wedgwood pieces you may have and Dallas will be pleased to tell us about them. Wedgwood is a lot more than the blue and white jasper and it is a beautiful product from an innovative company founded by an amazing individual. (Dallas also happens to be a very long-standing WI member … and is also Katrina's mother!)
