On Sunday 2 December 2018 The Muriel Matters Society Inc. had its annual Christmas gathering. The enthusiastic team at the Seven Stars Hotel in Angas Street in the Adelaide CBD were kind enough to host us. The Secretary of The Society, Frances Bedford MP, informed the members of her recent trip to New Zealand and what the Society had accomplished this year. A lively discussion from members followed about the possibilities for celebrating the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in South Australia in 2019. As ever, it was great to see the breath of our member’s ideas and their willingness to take initiative in this space – we’ll have to see what happens! Coffees in the morning were followed up by lunch afterwards for many of us. It was wonderful to see so many faces, both old and new, using the opportunity to catch up and wish each other well heading into Christmas and the New Year.
