Canada Day at Canada House 2016
After our poll on Canada Day regarding the first woman to be on a Canadian Bank Note it was interesting to see who the Canadian public voted for …. Finance Minister Bill Morneau announced the winner at a ceremony in Gatineau, Que., on Dec. 8, 2016, Ms. Desmond will be featured on the new $10 bill. Wanda Robson, the sister of Viola Desmond said ‘It’s a big day to have a woman on a bank note, but it’s an especially big day to have your big sister on a bank note. Our family is extremely proud and honoured.’
Sissinghurst Castle and Gardens September 2016
CWC Members had a wonderful day visiting Sissinghurst, among the most famous gardens in England and grade I listed. Created on a medieval moated site around surviving brick buildings and park of the 16th century. Vita Sackville-West was both a writer – poet, novelist, and biographer – and a gardener. She had a regular gardening column in The Observer. Her garden at Sissinghurst is one of the most admired and influential English gardens of the 20th century.
