WI 40th Celebration
WI 40th Cake

On Saturday 13th August members of Haddenham & Witchert WI celebrated the 40th Anniversary of the institute.

The garden party was held in the garden of Margaret Watkins and members enjoyed a wonderful spread of sandwiches and nibbles, cakes, scones, strawberries and cream provided by Posh Nosh.

The anniversary celebrated the inaugural meeting in 1975, but with such a busy year for The National W.I it was decided to defer till this summer. Two of the founder members Margaret Watkins and Doreen Hole were present.

Members enjoyed the sunshine and good company. The cake was different as it reflected the skills of The W.I., breaking away from a traditional sponge base, being a knitted and crochets cake.

Margaret Watkins and Margaret Law, the President, spoke about Haddenham & Witchert WI, and although they couldn't cut the cake everyone joined in the toast.
