Cel­e­brat­ing a cen­tury of WIs

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

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.
