The date of Lay Members’ Day 2018 is Saturday 19 May
Our thanks go to Michela Antonella and Linda Jordan for their successful handling of the event in recent years.
This year’s LMD was well attended as before and although we had a slight drop in exhibition entries the standard was rather impressive. Ian Garrett FSSI was at hand to provide a most constructive and subtly witty commentary, whilst Ruth Sutherland, Rebecca Osborne and Alma Swan won the people’s choice awards. Former winner Nikolai Valchev was busy demonstrating his work, together with the other demonstrators Ruth Rowland, Tina Warren and Attilio Medda. The Margaret Daubney lecture was delivered by Nathalie Moisy in the most technologically advanced way we have probably ever seen at the SSI. The usual stallholders were present and a considerable amount was raised through the raffle.
A big thank you to all who over the past years have attended and supported LMD in the most diverse ways, and all best wishes to the new team from the outgoing organisers. We are delighted to finally be able to announce our new LMD team: Cathy Stables FSSI, Gwyneth Hibbett and Rosana Ibarrola, led by Hilary Lewis, will be in charge of organising another exciting Day in 2018.
