Talk to Norfolk Women Graduates – Thursday February 25th at 2.30pm

February 6, 2021 Off By Judi Daykin
I am very pleased to have been invited to speak to the Norfolk and Norwich Association of the BFWG (British Federation of Women Graduates) on THURSDAY 25th FEBRUARY at 2.30pm.
Although the meeting is for members, the Association are always pleased to find new recruits. There a some details of the group below, and I am sure they would be happy to hear from anyone who would be interested in joining them.
Meanwhile, I am enjoying putting together my talk in between writing chapters of a new Sara Hirst book. Do keep tuning in here now and then to see how it is progressing.
From the Association:
BFWG (British Federation of Women Graduates) Norfolk and Norwich Association was founded in 1951. We celebrate our seventieth birthday this year.
BFWG itself was established well over a hundred years ago, and forms part of GWI (Graduate Women International) formerly IFUW (International Federation of University Women) which is chiefly concerned with the fostering of education of women and girls worldwide. Nationally BFWG awards grants and scholarships from charitable funds for post-graduate study. An Association for younger women has recently been founded. At a local level our Education Award provides money for a Norfolk girl who is about to begin a degree course at university.
The Association is no longer graduate exclusive. We welcome women of all ages with other professional qualifications, and Friends – women who do not hold professional qualifications but are interested in joining a group of like-minded women to experience a stimulating programme of events and social activities.
These include regular monthly meetings usually held at the Costessey Centre near Norwich to hear interesting, sometimes controversial, speakers on various subjects including current social or local topics. Informal discussion groups to discuss subjects of current interest; group visits to local places of interest; occasional visits to the House of Parliament; a book group; informal social events held in members’ homes, coffee mornings, bring-and-buy mornings, quizzes and book sales etc, and a luncheon club to which family and friends are invited.
Currently all meetings are being held online as required by COVID restrictions.
