The 1960s were a busy decade for CFWI. In 1965 the WI (nationally) celebrated its Golden Jubilee, and Cornwall celebrated in style.
A Golden Jubilee Rally was held in May of that year at the Royal Cornwall Showgrounds in Wadebridge. The Rally was officially opened by Mrs Peggy Archer of radio fame (aka actress June Spencer). You can see the full programme of the rally here.
As part of the Rally, a Golden Jubilee Pageant was held, with WI members depicting moments in British and WI history. Click here to see the full programme of the Pageant.
