If you want to become more involved, just let us know, our thanks to everyone who helps make the NAWC a wonderful resource for women across the UK.



Maureen Harwood has been a club member for over 40 years first joining Hoddesdon Women's Club in 1973 and then moving to Rye Park Women's Club 25 years later. For a lot of that time she served on her local Association, The Herts. Lea Valley, as Chairman and secretary.

She is married to Derrick who was a Territorial Army Officer and has two daughters, Amanda who is married to Ian and has two boys, and Suzy.   Maureen served as Vice-Chairman at Head Office for five years and then took over as Treasurer for NAWC.

Maureen has been Chairman of the Restoration Committee for her local church for the past 25 years and though she gave up the position last December it still seems to be playing a big part in her life, she is also a Sunday School teacher.

There doesn't seem to be a lot of time for hobbies, she can knit and sew and she likes trying new crafts but it would probably only be a one-off.

Maureen travels to Kent every week to child mind her two grandsons who are the delight of her life.
