Set­ting out their stall

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Wi Celebrates Centenary -

WI mem­bers showed the va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties they get up to at an ex­hi­bi­tion in Ten­ter­den Town Hall.

The six groups in the Ten­ter­den dis­trict – Ten­ter­den, Ten­ter­den Glebe, High Halden, Rol­ven­den, St Michael’s and Head­corn – each had a stall on Fri­day.

Cyn­thia Crow­ley , who has been a WI mem­ber for 53 years and be­longs to Rol­ven­den, said: “As well as mark­ing the 100th an­niver­sary, we hoped to get a few peo­ple in­ter­ested in join­ing.

“Each WI had a ta­ble to show what they do. There were lace mak­ing and knit­ting demon­stra­tions and craft work.

“Some WIs do drama and oth­ers play board games – ev­ery WI is dif­fer­ent so any­one can find some­thing they en­joy do­ing.”

Also on show were de­tails of cour­ses at the WI’s own col­lege and at the county fed­er­a­tion.
