There was another beautifully decorated cake displaying the 25th Anniversary that Susanne Gervey duly cut. Marion video’d Susanne’s talk and I eagerly await seeing it.

I have witnessed good and bad Committees but am glad to say that the spirit of learning the writing craft has brought this club to it’s current level of development. I hope it continues to grow and new members can join to refresh the   old members enthusiasm.  Jo_CoughlinLouisa, Garry at GCW lit lunchmarion and funky chicken book best
