On Sunday 31st July, we held our AGM in the Country Women’s Association’s (CWA) beautiful premises at 30 Dequetteville Terrace, Kent Town. After the meeting dealt with Business, Julia Lester, presenter on Classic Drive on ABC FM for 12 years , spoke about her extensive career in radio and television journalism, particularly those years spent at Auntie and the insights she had gained. Her speech was titled “Public and Proud of It: Why an Independent ABC Really Matters Now”. Her talk linked well with ABC Friend’s National Campaign Coordinator, Jeff Water’s talk “The National Campaign and Going Forward”. The Friends National Campaign took place over the month leading up to the 2016 election to rally public support for the ABC. The meeting concluded with an excellent afternoon tea provided by Jane’s Kitchen. The afternoon was enjoyed by all attending.
