Rebecca wins the Nordic Hat Trophy!
This prize is awarded to the lady with the best hat at the annual Ladies Circle National Conference; the ornate trophy was originally presented almost 20 years ago by the Ladies Circles in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Latvia, Estonia and Iceland to foster friendship with their counterparts in the UK.
"We're more likely to be found in jeans and T-shirts or volunteering in high-vis tabards, but National Conference is a great excuse to get dressed up. There were some amazing hats and fascinators on display, so I was shocked to win" said Rebecca. She now has to wear the hat to all Ladies Circle events for the next 12 months. "If you see me out and about in a Winchester wearing the hat, come and say hello and find out what we're up to." Ladies Circle is a national organisation for women aged 18-45 interested in fun, friendship and fundraising. "New members are always welcome and we have new clubs starting up in Southampton and Andover as well," said Rebecca, Area Chair for Hampshire and Isle of Wight.
