Our centenary celebrations got off to a great start at the March meeting with Lucy and Merry from ‘The History Wardrobe’ taking us down memory lane.  They presented a lovely show of vintage clothing and accessories and told some interesting and funny tales about the history of fashion and how members dressed for the WI in years gone by.

Well done to everyone involved in the organisation of this super event, and  once again many thanks Terry Collinson for these lovely photos.
