MAMBLE CUM BAYTON WI: Mamble village hall on August 7 saw members of the WI gather to celebrate 100 years since its formation in 1917.

The village hall, the meeting place of the WI for those 100 years was prettily decorated with bunting, flowers and the Institute’s treasured curtains that were designed and made for an exhibition in 1933.

In true W.I. tradition there was a large table of delicious teatime treats.

President Val Evans welcomed everyone to the birthday party, among them Marjorie Whiting the Worcestershire Federation Chairman.

Members and guests then enjoyed an entertaining afternoon of lively music, afternoon tea, a quiz, a raffle and a display of items from the Institutes history including a reading from the minutes of the first inaugural meeting in 1917.

For a keepsake and for the history books of the future, a group photograph of members was taken, and one of Patricia Trow our longest serving member cutting a two tier birthday cake.
