Win­ning night

Lancashire Life - - FEEDBACK -

It was ladies’ night at The Vil­lage Ho­tel in Bury as guests from var­i­ous Women’s In­sti­tutes cel­e­brated 100 years since women won the vote in an event hosted by Prestwich and White­field WI .

The WI was formed in 1915 to re­vi­talise ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties and en­cour­age women to be­come more in­volved dur­ing the First World War. Since then, the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s aims have broad­ened and the WI is now the largest vol­un­tary women’s or­gan­i­sa­tion in the UK.

Guests were wel­comed with a drink on ar­rival and then en­joyed a won­der­ful three-course meal.

Carla Palmer was the evening’s en­ter­tain­ment and she de­lighted ev­ery­one with her win­ning vocals as many ladies took to the dance floor and en­joyed the fun un­til late evening.
