Celebrating a century of WIs
YESTERDAY (Wednesday) it will be exactly 100 years since the first Women’s Institute in the UK was established, in Anglesey.
Now there are more than 6,500, each one offering friendship, entertainment and education, and together giving women a powerful voice.
The Beaconsfield WI is proud to be among that number and proud to join in the centennial celebrations.
We’ve partied at Waddesdon, one of us took tea at the Palace, and our members marked the centenary in style by decorating a tree on Beaconsfield’s Town Hall Green.
We’ve also enjoyed our local sister WI’s events.
We are about to celebrate our third very busy year in October and would love to extend a warm welcome to new members.
So if you live in the Beaconsfield area and are looking for a lively, friendly and interesting evening group to join, or just want to find out what the WI offers, do contact us at sandersdebs@gmail. com.
