CUCKFIELD WI: The meeting, which took place on Tuesday 20th March, saw 23 ladies meet at Cuckfield Baptist Church to hear speaker Carole Andrews discuss “Girls do Science”. It was with great interest that the women heard stories of sadness, elation and great achievement, with a re-occurring theme of men taking all the credit. In a society where the media is currently focused on the gender pay gap and “times up” campaign it was an incredibly relevant topic.

It was confirmed that we will be holding a stall at the Cuckfield Cuckoo Fare on Monday May 7th.

We welcome new members and meet on the third Tuesday of each month. For details please contact hayley.bradbury@yahoo.co.uk.
