Members of Altarnun WI met together to celebrate their 60th birthday earlier this year. They met on the Village Green and drove to the Bay View Inn at Widemouth Bay, where they had reserved tables in the conservatory. It was a sunny day, and the sea was magnificent. A few past members had been invited, and five of them joined the group for an excellent lunch.
Chris Evans, Altarnun WI President, read the first ever minutes (taken from the Archives) of the newly formed Altarnun WI in 1959. Those were the days when all members were called by their title and surname – so different from today, sixty years on!
The members also enjoyed looking at two wonderful albums of photographs and newspaper cuttings from Altarnun WI’s history, its members and their activities.
