LEEDS WI: Group celebrates 100 years in village
Thursday 21st February 2019
LEEDS Women’s Institute celebrated its 100th birthday with cake, personal tales and a lesson in salsa.
The WI met at the village hall on February 14 for a special evening, where members talked about personal mementos.
The night was rounded off by a demonstration of salsa dancing by the newly-elected chairman Louise Menenes-Bautista and her Colombian-born husband Andres.
The WI branch has, like many rural groups, suffered dwindling numbers in recent years but has already started attracting new, younger members.
In the picture are: Janet Buller, Sue Wenham, Jane Newsome, Tina Walters, Angela Morris, Lesley Finlay, Sylvia Chatterton, Teresa Tomlin, Louise Menenes-Bautista and Jane Shotliff.
Call Jane on 01622 862558 or Louise on 346785 to join up.
