Hi! Just wanted to say that I had been wanting to join a WI for ages and do something that gives me confidence to try new things, encourage and build on what I can do already…. I moved to Liverpool but keep in touch with what goes on “back home” and saw your exhibition at world of glass. I noticed that your president taught at Cowley High, business studies alevel year 2000…It gave me the push and confidence t

To stop dithering and go along to wi childwall liverpool! Thanks! Kerry Carlile nee Rigby.
