Flat Friends Weekend 2023

Our largest gathering yet! Women came from all over the British Isles to come together for a weekend of activities and experiences, and left with the most memorable moments and friendships that will last forever!

Friday afternoon we began arriving out our hotel in Warwickshire, and spent the evening catching up with old friends and matching in real life to the Facebook profiles we know so well!
Saturday morning kicked off with an arts and crafts session with Emma and Janet, learning how to needle felt, decoupage, and paint pebbles. Followed by an exercise class with Carolyn, using the fitness bands she had kindly donated to everyone.
After an amazing lunch, the clothes swap was in full swing. Sam from Boost was kept busy, with lots taking advantage of one-to-one support trying on their breast forms
Aromatherapy with Rachael wrapped up the day’s activities, and saw us learning about the benefits of different essential oils, before creating an individual scent for us to take home.

Trustees Gilly, Sarah, and Odile presented our Annual Review (with Clare behind the camera capturing it on Facebook Live), followed by a Q&A session.

And, no Flat Friends Weekend is complete without a never-ending raffle!

For those who stayed overnight, we rounded off the weekend on Sunday morning with mindfulness led by Daphne.

Oh, and did we mention the topless photoshoot in the field behind the hotel. We had the pleasure of Sam Dade’s company all weekend as the director of our first short film. (More news on that later in the year!)
We headed home full of boosted confidence, carrying a wellness bag including generous donations from Lush, Pitrok, and Shhh, and already looking forward to Flat Friends Weekend 2024!
