WI history

A new publication celebrates 100 years of Stanhoe WI.

Cover of Frances's Stanhoe WI history book

For the past two years Frances Ulyatt has spent a great deal of time meticulously scanning the Minute Books and assorted memorabilia of Stanhoe and Barwick Wi to produce a beautifully presented booklet entitled “Trees, Teas, and Tablecloths; a brief history of Stanhoe and Barwick Women’s Institute 1919–2019.”

A copy was presented to every member to treasure at the end of the centenary year.

Beginning with the story of the WI’s formation in 1919, and with tales of the old WI Hut as the meeting room, the lavishly illustrated text takes us through the changing format of meetings, membership, outings, birthday celebrations, and good works carried out for the benefit of the village.

A great deal has changed in the hundred years of the existence of Stanhoe and Barwick WI, and it is so good to have it in print for everyone to read and appreciate.

Grateful thanks are offered to Fran for her hard work in producing this wonderful story and memento, a record of social history for everyone to appreciate. It provided a fitting conclusion to our centenary year.
