Festschrift to honour Jennifer Creek
On the 1st September 2009 RCOMH and The
Retreat hosted a festschrift for Jennifer Creek to mark her
retirement. A festschrift is a book honouring a respected academic.
The papers from the day, as well as other reflections
on Jennifer's contribution and messages of goodwill, will
form the book that will be presented to Jennifer later. We are also
hoping to publish a book to mark the festschrift but
the event, itself, was an opportunity to celebrate Jennifer
and her many achievements...
A variety of presentations were given by the following people,
where these were using Powerpoint, the files have been linked.

As well as finger knitting we also engaged in the occupation of
limerick writing. The Playback Theatre company provided
opportunities for people to share their personal memories of
working with Jennifer.
