Anniversary tea

Date: Friday 17th August 2018

ON the 100th anniversary of the suffragette movement, Alston WI organised an afternoon tea to celebrate at the Masonic Hall. On the door and selling raffle tickets was Gill Rogers. A toy and bric-a-brac stall was laden with items to buy.

A competition for the best decorated hat attracted 13 entries. The theme of dressing in green, cream or purple suffragette colours raised £130. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon with tasty homemade cakes and sandwiches, served by the committee.
