State visit

WI centenary attracts officials from Norwich.

As it is our centenary year Stanhoe and Barwick WI members were honoured at their August meeting to be visited by the Federation Chairman Margaret Collingwood, the Federation Secretary Louise Casson, the editor of WI News Sue Ovenden, and the local WI Adviser Coral Batchelor, as well as visiting members of Wells WI.

Chris Armstrong kept us entertained for almost an hour with his talk “Anything from a pin to an elephant”, based on his book of the same name, giving background stories to the founding and running of three Norfolk department stores: Bakers and Larners of Holt, Roys of Wroxham and Palmers of Yarmouth. He also mentioned Break charity shops whose good works are dear to his heart.

The talk was followed by tea and cake made by members, before the business of the day was discussed. A collection of decorated wooden spoons created by members were presented to the Federation Secretary for use in Evelyn Suffield House, the Norfolk WI Federation Office in Norwich.

It was a very busy and interactive afternoon.
