Trea­cles group aims to be WI treat

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

A NEW Women’s In­sti­tute has started in Tyther­ing­ton.

The Tyther­ing­ton Trea­cles, made up of women aged from their 20s to their 70s, is the 200th such group to open in Cheshire.

A spe­cial meet­ing at­tended by chair­woman of the WI Cheshire Fed­er­a­tion, Frances Wool­lam, and Ann Daughtrey, WI ad­vi­sor, took place ear­lier this month to sign the con­sti­tu­tion that makes the group of­fi­cial.

More than 50 ladies turned out on the open­ing night to cel­e­brate, en­joy­ing a ‘Pam­per and Prosecco’ night com­plete with demon­stra­tions of the lat­est hair, beauty and make-up trends.

Lo­cal pro­fes­sion­als were also on hand to share their top tips on nails, make up, hair and fa­cial care.

Newly elected pres­i­dent April Ack­er­ley said: “It’s won­der­ful to have so many ladies come to­gether to cel­e­brate the for­ma­tion of Tyther­ing­ton Trea­cles WI – of­fi­cially the 200th branch in Cheshire.”

Sarah Har­g­reaves, sec­re­tary, said: “April and I both wanted to learn new skills, share our own knowl­edge and make new friends, so we de­cided to look into join­ing a WI

“But we had such a huge amount of in­ter­est we formed our own branch.”

Along with plenty of bub­bles and home-made cakes, a raf­fle was held with prizes kindly do­nated by Boots, Lind­say Howard Hair­dressers, Tesco, The Tyther­ing­ton Club and Cherry Blossom Bak­ery.

The group meet on the se­cond Mon­day of ev­ery month at Marl­bor­ough Pri­mary School on Tyther­ing­ton Drive.

The next meet­ing will take place on Mon­day, March 14, at 7.30pm.

All ladies are wel­come to at­tend.

The WI is the largest vol­un­tary women’s or­gan­i­sa­tion in the UK and cel­e­brated its cen­te­nary last year.
