On Tuesday 2 November 2, members of Coads Green WI, joined by partners and husbands, met at Polhilsa for a dinner to celebrate the group’s 60th anniversary.
Members were greeted by Alison Gribble, as they arrived, who presented each one with a button hole. The tables had been beautifully decorated by Janet Ham. President Daphne Tucker welcomed everyone, including special guest Kathy Reed, Coads Green’s WI Adviser.
Daphne gave a history of the founding of Coads Green WI and gave particular thanks to members and the committee for their continued help and support. Daphne and Kathy cut the celebration cake which had been made by Pat Mallett.
It was a very enjoyable evening, providing the opportunity to share a delicious meal and good company. Paul Mallett represented the male contingent when he gave his thanks. Gerry Rennie provided the archive material.
