The Federation’s Annual Conference was held in the very impressive setting of the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow over the weekend of 6-8 September. In addition to the AGM, two splendid dinners, a ceilidh and a dance, the main event was the inauguration of the new President of the Federation Jane Brown. During the handover Jane was generous in her praise of the work done by outgoing President Bob Stewart. He had been a fantastic ambassador for the Federation during his year of office and guided it through difficult financial times and led its emergence as a revitalised and dynamic organisation. In response he acknowledged the tremendous support he had received from everyone but, most especially, from his charming wife Frances.


The 2014 conference will be held in Irvine 12/13/14th of September
