Little Sutton Sapphires WI
This is a new WI in Ellesmere Port Cheshire,
A meeting was set up to see just how many women would be interested in WI in Little Sutton and we had 50+ ladies from all age groups attend.
A WI advisor from the Cheshire Federation came and gave us a talk about the WI how and where it started, and general information.
We also had another lady who was an organiser of the craft marquee for the Cheshire Show, she came along to tell us all about the Centenary Marquee that was there last year.
We where told that 7 miles of bunting and beautiful banners made by our WI’s where on show in the marquee, to celebrate the NFWI Centenary.
It also made a wonderful backdrop for the amazing exhibits and
displays on show.
Over 500 entries provided a wonderful array of entries in
cookery, preserves, wine making, cake decorating and sugar craft, fabric, yarn and hard crafts, art,
flower arranging and photography.
Another meeting was set for Wed 9th February at the Little Sutton Community Centre and it was arranged that would be the night we would officially become a new Institute for the WI.
There was an outstanding number of women who came along and signed up.
We also sang the anthem for the WI called Jerusalem and it was a tear jerking experience.
