NFWI Centenary Baton Week

Lancashire 19th – 26th February 2014

Our President, Edna North and member Joan Rome, attended the Anglican Cathedral on Thursday 20th February for the Centenary Baton celebration ‘Inspiring Women Working Together’.  The baton launched in Anglesey where the first WI meeting was held in the UK in 1915, is travelling the 69  Federations in England, Wales & the Islands to celebrate the links of friendship & community developed through the WI, and will finish its trip at the Annual Meeting in June 2015 at the Royal Albert Hall.
