90th birthday celebrations

In April Tysoe WI celebrated its 90th anniversary with an exhibition in Tysoe Village Hall.  Projects past and present were on display including: Village History scrapbooks: 1956/ 1963 & 2000; WI archive material and examples of skills and hobbies of present members.

Our County Chairman was among about a hundred visitors to the exhibition.  We’d expected a steady trickle so were rather taken by surprise when so many visitors arrived on the dot of two o’clock.  WI groups came from all over the county and villagers dropped in to lend support.  The items on display stirred memories.  On seeing themselves in the albums people wondered that they’d dared to be seen in 60’s and 70’s fashion, let alone be photographed!

Rosemary Brown’s floral arrangements were admired, and the refreshment providers were rushed off their feet.

The evening continued in the same happy mood.  Guests were welcomed and greetings read, including one from Her Majesty the Queen.  After supper the Tanworth-in-Arden WI Choir entertained us with songs and amusing sketches, and Belinda Keep played her saxophone.
