Members of the University's new workplace Women’s Institute - called the ‘Busy Bees’ - joined in the recent national celebrations of the organisation's centenary

Busy Bees celebrate

With over 6,600 groups nationwide, the WI is the largest voluntary women’s organisation in the UK. The Busy Bees is one of only seven workplace WI groups in the country and is the first of its kind in Lancashire.

The group is now 36 members strong and three of them met for lunch on 16 September to celebrate 'a century of inspiring women'. The photo shows: (left to right) Lindsey Loughtman, Susan Johnson and Ruth Burns.
