Centenary celebrated with yarn bombing
THE Little Chalfont Evening WI used the farmers’ market to celebrate the centenary of the Women’s Institute on Saturday.
And the celebration included some colourful yarn bombing.
Organiser, Gill Roberts, said: “The WI centenary celebrations were a great success with lots of children taking part in hunting the animals on the village war memorial flower bed that the WI help to maintain.
“The WI had a stand at the farmers’ market displaying story sacks that they have made for local primary schools and gave out pieces of centenary cake. The decorated bollards brought smiles to people’s faces and the WI campaign signs illustrated the powerful influence that the WI had had over the years.
“The weather was mixed but didn’t dampen the spirits and the celebrations brought some new faces to the market who have pledged to return.”
