Praze-an-Beeble WI has helped one of its founder members celebrate a very special day. Betty Fletcher was given a cake and flowers to mark her 90th Birthday by President, Eileen Tessier, along with a card and the best wishes of all the current members.
Betty’s association with Praze-an-Beeble WI began on the very day it was formed – she was at the first meeting in November 1953, which was held in a wooden chalet in a garden! Betty joined as a member but, as a newlywed on a budget, couldn’t quite stretch to helping the WI get set up with crockery and other items, and so decided not to continue.
However, her links with the WI didn’t end there. After some years living abroad when her husband was posted to India, Betty and her family returned to Praze in 1964, and she rejoined Praze-an-Beeble WI the following year. She has been a full-time and valued member ever since, including many years spent on the Committee.
Betty will always have a place in Praze-an-Beeble WI’s history – from day one to a wonderful 90. Happy Birthday, Betty!
