Lincoln branch news March to July 2017

On 24th March, in conjunction with the University of Lincoln, the Lincolnshire branch hosted an inspirational lecture by Lord Boateng, on ‘Education for a Changing World.’ This was greatly enjoyed by branch members, staff and students of the University.

On 1st April, a committee meeting was held to review progress in the Discover Your Voice arena and to confirm plans for the year. Also in April, our annual selection of students for travel scholarship took place producing four excellent candidates, with China, Honduras, and Iceland being the most notable destinations

May 9th saw the much-valued visit to Doddington Hall for the Lincolnshire Artists annual exhibition. A reception in the Hall and a wander round the lovely gardens added to a great evening. This was made possible once again by the generosity of James and Claire Birch.

On 27th June, a Discover Your Voice day was held at Bishop Grosseteste University hosting two schools with PGCE trainees attending, and on 29th June a planning meeting was held with Dartmouth House and the David Ross Educational Trust to prepare for future Discover Your Voice activities.

On 7th July, the AGM was held at Fulbeck Hall, courtesy of committee member William Day, with Jane Easton speaking about the education strategy and the upcoming centenary. Some 40 attendees. A photo is attached of Jane Easton with scholar Seb Burch who travelled to Lisbon and undertook a work experience placement with Totemic, whose headquarters are in Grantham, for four weeks.
