Members Weekend and 45th birthday party

Oct 16, 2016

Our 45th birthday celebration and members weekend was held at the Kepplewray Centre in Cumbria on the 8th and 9th October, and was enjoyed by over fifty members!! Over the weekend we saw our members, staff and directors take part in various discussions and presentations, as well as relishing the wholesome food prepared by the lovely people at Kepplewray. The weekend also included a trip to a nearby host, Laya Point, which is set in the most breathtaking surroundings. Read more about our 45th birthday weekend in the upcoming winter newsletter, published on 1st December. Thank you to Chris-Schmidt Reid for capturing the weekend in photos for us and to Scarlett Penn for the photo of our birthday cake. If you were there and have any photos to share please send them to info@wwoof.org.uk.
