The Women’s Institute Centenary in Natland

Last Wednesday marked a 100 years ago exactly since our local W.I. had its first meeting in the Reading Room at the end of Helmside Road. Despite all the changes that have taken place over this time, the W.I has met on the third Wednesday of the month, offering its members friendship, entertainment and opportunities to learn new skills. 

The event was celebrated with a toast, a fine rendition of Jerusalem and a piece of cake baked by the longest serving member, Marion Thornton, and decorated by Hilda Walker.

Here is a report of WI activities over the last few months.
