FROM HER CORNER 2010! : The Featherston Community Centre has teamed up with the Wairarapa Women’s Centre to bring you FROM HER CORNER 2010, an autumn speaker’s series. Our first evening featured Homeopathy & Hormones with Claire Bleakley, and was a great success.
Next up is Corrinne Oliver who will be speaking on Personal Development and Assertiveness. Tutoring ‘Self Awareness’ programmes for Women & Teens, she will discuss the importance of standing up for ourselves and why we sometimes need to ruffle a few feathers.
From Her Corner runs on the 3rd Tuesday of the month @ 7.30pm for April, May & June. All are welcome to attend and entry is by gold coin donation. Talks are scheduled to begin at 7.30pm followed by discussion and supper. We’ve got a great group of Speakers lined up to cover several interesting topics. Mark the dates & keep an eye out for fliers and more information!
