Cen­te­nary cel­e­brated with yarn bomb­ing

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.”
