Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Night Lights -

Great Chart & God­in­ton was among WI groups tak­ing part in events to celebrate the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s cen­te­nary.

Last Wed­nes­day – the ac­tual 100th an­niver­sary date of the first WI meet­ing in the UK – the group’s mem­bers cel­e­brated in posh frocks and hats with cham­pagne, straw­ber­ries and cakes at their meet­ing in God­in­ton Vil­lage Hall.

Af­ter a rous­ing cho­rus of Jerusalem, mem­bers played pass the par­cel with some chal­leng­ing for­feits on the way to­gether with some very com­pet­i­tive card games be­fore end­ing their meet­ing with a raf­fle.

On Satur­day, Septem­ber 12, group mem­bers also marked the cen­te­nary by treat­ing res­i­dents of Loudon Court on the God­in­ton Park es­tate to a mu­si­cal feast with a cream tea and cakes ac­com­pa­nied by ac­cor­dion mu­sic pro­vided by Michelle McDer­mott. A great time was had by all and the res­i­dents en­joyed singing along to their favourite tunes.
