Members enjoyed a lively and colourful District meeting recently. The business part of the meeting included a Open Forum which encouraged members to share thoughts and was followed by a lovely lunch. After lunch there was a speaker from BEAT, President Zena’s chosen charity. In keeping with Zena’s theme of ‘Sock it to Eating Disorders’ members joined in by wearing silly socks/tights, hats and scarfs!
