On 13 October more than 40 members of Creekside WI gathered in their finery at the Lakeside Hotel in Wootton to mark the occasion of their 50th birthday with a celebration lunch. The fizz and chatter flowed as the photographer from ‘The County Press’ marshalled everyone for the official photographs.
Creekside ladies were delighted to welcome two founder members, Olive Lailey and Mavis Willis, along with Federation Chairman Sue Biss as special guests. Two other founder members of Creekside who are still current members, Pat Kendall and Mona Williams, were unable to attend.
Sunshine and showers did not stop the intrepid members of Wootton Creek WI manning their gazebo at Party in the Park on Saturday 22nd of July. Despite the worsening weather conditions, a steady flow of passers by stopped to enjoy taking a risk on the Wine or Water stall, chose from the delicious cakes and biscuits to buy or dipped into the children’s Lucky Dip. There was also a choice of books, DVDs and jewellery and hand made crafts to purchase. Were you the lucky winner who found the lost watch somewhere in Wootton?
