Out and about,Padiham

How time flies by, another AGM for Padiham.Nan. our Chair began by thanking the committee and members for making her year so enjoyable and then gave an account of the past year and finally introduced the committee.


She has managed to persuade members to fill all the posts so we are looking forward to another year. Sadly Veronica has had to resign due to work commitments but we hope to see her whenever she can make it.

Our speaker Chris Mitchell then explained how bags of Difference was making such a huge affect on the women  of Uganda. She visits and teaches how to construct various bags and then check their quality before bringing them home for sale. Each article is made of glorious African fabric and her display was amazing.


She was inspiring and many of us purchased items. Her talk was well illustrated with slides and ably assisted by her husband.


she can be contacted at

In July we had been set a challenge of creating a banner. Almost every letter has been returned and we look to seeing it displayed very soon.
