The W.I. celebrates its centenary during 2015. There are lots of events to mark this milestone, one of which happened on our doorstep on Saturday April 18. The Centenary baton, which is traveling through the whole of the UK was handed over to the local WI group at a picnic lunch at Broughton Castle. It was a free event and members and their guests were asked to dress in 1915 style, there were a couple of suffragettes. Everyone brought their own picnic to enjoy in the castle grounds. A wonderful day was had by all. Many thanks to Lord and Lady Saye and Sele for their hospitality.
