Celebrating our Centenary
100 year certificate
We celebrated our centenary this year on 10th April (sadly our previous date of 27th February was postponed because of the snow). We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Wingrove House Restaurant in Alfriston, and welcomed our guests Connie Shepherd, a former member who had moved to Lewes, and Stephanie Gaunt, Vice-Chair of the ESFWI and also Editor of the Federation WI News.
The weather steadily improved during the day and we were able to go outside and have a group photo taken.

What a lively, fascinating and laughter-filled afternoon we had listening to our speaker, Ann Chance (Yee-ha!) followed by a glass of bubbles and a wonderful cake made by our President to celebrate our Centenary this month.
Members also had the opportunity to look back over the Archives and reflect on the changes which have taken place in the last 100 years.
