GLENGORMLEY Townswomen’s Guild held its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, March 19.

Secretary Ann Adams gave a comprehensive report of the year’s events, and treasurer Carole Pearson read the financial report.

Chairman Lorna Mills thanked the committee for their hard work over the past 12 months, and also the members for their faithful attendance.

As there were no proposals to change officers or committee members, no election was held.

Members then took part in an antique-themed quiz followed by a bring and by sale.

Meanwhile, Guild members were delighted to welcome Rev Dr Indergit Boghal to their February meeting in Glengormley Presbyterian Church Hall.

Dr Boghal gave an interesting update on the ongoing peace-building work being carried out at Corrymeela in Ballycastle.

Glengormley Townswomen’s Guild visited Corrymeela in May last year as part of their programme of cross-community peace-building work through CAN Peace III, and members were so impressed that they took up a challenge to raise £1,000 within a year of their visit for the ongoing work of Corrymeela.

Members worked extremely hard fundraising, and after only several months were delighted to hand over a cheque for £1,000 to Dr Boghal at their meeting.

The Guild’s next meeting will take place on Tuesday, April 16 at 8pm in Glengormley Presbyterian Church Hall. The guest speaker will be Linda Ervine from East Belfast Mission who will give a presentation on the Irish language.

New members are welcome to come along.
