The Dorset Federation of Women's Institutes are holding their Annual Meeting on Thursday 18 October 2018 at the Lighthouse, Poole.

The morning speaker will be Frances Benton, known colloquially as The Pearl Lady. Frances is well-known to many as a tutor in Pearl Knotting at Denman. She has a kaleidoscopic knowledge of everything about pearls, and her talk will be fascinating and very surprising. She will also bring pearls to show and sell.

The afternoon speaker will be Nancy Birtwhistle, Winner of the Great British Bake-off 2014. Nancy has had a life full if interest, mostly because of her own enterprise. As well as being a baking star, she has a very productive garden with fruit and vegetables, a love for dog training which took her to Crufts once and, of course, daily baking.

Doors Open: 9.30am
Meeting starts: 10.55am
Day Finishes: 4.15pm
