East Sussex Federation

Federation Annual Meeting 2016

This year we hope to welcome more working members to our Federation’s Annual Meeting as it is being held on Saturday 9th April at The Winter Garden, Eastbourne. Our main speaker is Mandy Hickson who, as one of the first female pilots in her frontline Tornado GR4 squadron, flying multi-million pound fast jets for the Royal Air Force, worked in a constantly challenging, yet exhilarating environment. Also speaking is Janice Langley, Chair of the National Federation of WIs who will give some insights into her experiences during the 2015 Centenary year.

There will be lots of stalls including our lovely baskets provided by WIs. Why not join the 300 Club or take part in the Denman Dip?

You can apply for a ticket through your WI or individually. Application Form
