The Province of Chester are to be congratulated on their excellent organisation of this conference which was held in the splendid surroundings of the Christleton Centre, just outside Chester.

A get to know us event was held at the Royal Wolverhampton School to raise awareness of Freemasonry for Women and their aims, ideals and values. This event was supported by the Province of Staffordshire. The speakers included Grand Master Christine Chapman; Provincial Grand Master John Lockley; Grand Secretary Maxine Priestley; Uni Scheme representative Peter Hughes;  Peter Hill School Governor and Anita Notta, parent and member of FFW. The long term aim is to set up a FFW Lodge based at the school taking its membership from staff, parents and alumni.  Thanks to Bro David Joyce for the photo. Bro Anita from our Ambassadors Coventry project helped organise the event, as the mother of two children at the school she is very keen to get this idea off the  ground.
