Chairmans' Message

This is my first National Chairman's message. I must begin by thanking the National Executive Committee for trusting me to lead TG forward.

It's a great honour to be your Chairman after a remarkable journey through TG. I first joined 41 years ago and soon became involved with my Guild's committee, and later with my Federation, where I became Chairman and then President. I was voted by members onto the National Trustee Board in 2009. TG is part of my family and I hope to meet lots of you during my time as Chairman.

I want to see Federations grow, as they are an important part of TG in keeping Guilds informed and connected. I would also like to find a way to link Guilds that have no Federation, so they can still feel part of our organisation.

I am pleased with your response to the plan for TG to have a memorial at the National Arboretum. And although Margaret Key has finished her term as National Chairman, she has kindly agreed to keep working on this project and see it through to the unveiling, as we will be putting forward a new design.

After the sell-out AGM in Bournemouth, I hope you will join me in Sheffield for next year's meeting. With so much to see and the Peak District on the doorstep, it's a great place to stay for a few days.

The work on our website (including opportunities for Guilds and Federations to get themselves known), plus active Facebook and Twitter accounts, are all helping us reach out to the public, as well as TG members. But we still need you as Townswomen to help us in forming new Guilds and letting people know what a wonderful organisation we are - we as a board cannot do it alone.

So please all join me in stepping onwards to the future of Townswomen's Guilds.
