It is with great pleasure I invite you to mingle and celebrate our first luncheon of the year, Jenny our OWACA chair, has worked her magic again by inviting Andrea Leadsom as our guest speaker, and, challenged me to beat the tremendous turnout when Tom Tugandhat M.P. was our speaker in November 2021:
Andrea was elected in 2010 for South Northamptonshire, in and since Margaret Thatcher's premiership she has held cabinet posts as well as running for the leadership, she will be a candid backbench speaker. Kate Kettle our recently elected local parliamentary spokesperson hopes to join us.
