                         WI members get the centenary party started

Centenary celebrations begin today (1 January 2014) for WI members everywhere as the specially designed centenary baton officially begins its journey around the UK.  The baton, launched in Anglesey where the first WI meeting was held in the UK in 1915, will now travel throughout the 69 federations in England, Wales and the Islands to celebrate the links of friendship and community developed through the WI, and will finish its trip at the Annual Meeting in June 2015 at the Royal Albert Hall.

The baton will travel the length and breadth of the UK to visit every federation, and will form the start of the WI's centenary celebrations as each federation plans a celebratory event to involve as many WI members as possible.  Plans to celebrate its arrival and travel through each area are as varied as the members themselves; some will take the baton through town centres on open-top buses, on a speed boat, and on specially arranged walks and to parties, with the aim of involving as many members as possible in the biggest WI party.

 Cropwell Bishop WI collect the Centenary Baton

Thursday 12th June saw a group of us meeting ladies from Cropwell Butler at out village sign to collect the centenary baton which is travelling round the country to commemorate 100 years of the WI next year. We then passed it on to Colston Bassett at their village cross. It was a lovely afternoon and good to meet up with ladies from neighbouring institutes.
