- Chair’s Review – We’ve had a wonderful year together, we’ve ran a Summer Camp and a Winter Camp (that became Spring Camp because the weather was so bad.) The young women have represented us at a conference about Body Image in London.
We’ve continued work with our allotment project and have taken part in a really prestigious research project on Community Growing with Manchester University. We started running weekly sessions and have run weekend trips around the North West.
I’ve had a really lovely year and I’m really proud of our achievements and I hope you all are as well. – Claire H

Claire was standing for re-election as Chair for the fifth time, Heather was stepping down permanently, Laura was stepping down as Treasurer and standing for the Secretary position and H was standing as Treasurer.
Claire said goodbye to Heather and thanked her for all of her hard work while Laura and H gave their reasons for wanting to stand for the positions and explain what they could add to the project.Claire, Laura and H were asked to leave the room while the members of LIK:T voted.
All three received more “yes” votes than “no” votes so all three are now in position.

Claire informed us that there had been a casualty on Summer Camp and that we had unfortunately lost a whole Mexican Pie to the cat.
