WI on display

Stanhoe shows off WI achievements at Open Gardens.

Although the general view of the WI is “jam, craft, and Jerusalem”, we in Stanhoe & Barwick do our utmost to persuade people that there is more than that to the WI.

WI crafts and history on display in the church

Hence, despite a large number of breathtaking craft items on display in All Saints on Saturday 1 June, our information panels had headings like “We keep up with the times and listen to our members”; “We are about much more than craft”; and “Is this how you imagine WI members behaving?” (above a selection of photos from our WI albums).

We also had a display about our project to reunite descendants with letters from local servicemen abroad in the Second World War, writing to our WI to thank members for sending each of them a gift of ten shillings.

Just for a laugh, we included a caption competition, too – the results of which will be announced shortly! This showed a photograph from our tree planting ceremony in March:

Caption suggestions please!

WI crafts and history on display in the church

With the agreement of the MEHM Trustees, we have now been able to mark our centenary further by hanging three framed items in the Reading Room alongside our new centenary plaque:

WI certificates and other framed items on the Reading Room wall

On the left are the two carved plaques, the higher one commemorating our founder president, and the one below, our centenary, with the words “100 years of fun and friendship”.

Between the top plaque and the clock are a colour photograph – embellished with ribbon embroidery flowers – of Denman College, the WI’s own educational and recreational facility near Oxford; our official centenary certificate from the National Federation of Women’s Institutes; and a certificate of having been awarded third place in this year’s Norfolk Federation of WIs’ annual Rosebowl competition.
