Wiltshire received the baton from Gloucestershire on 23rd March with the first Wiltshire celebrations held in The Steam Museum, Swindon. the baton then transferred from North Wiltshire to South Wiltshire via Salisbury Plain on a Challenger Tank before arriving at Tidworth.
We enjoyed demonstrations of besom broom making, wood turning, clematis care and candle making in the morning. The afternoon kicked off with WI representatives showing their Centenary Banners while passing the baton between each WI present.
This was followed by a demonstration of 'Belly Dancing' from Wafaa Powell who visited us last month. Redlynch WI treated us to a performance of 'One Hundred Years of The WI' highlighting significant events across the decades with suitable period costume - a very good summary of key moments. The gathering rounded off with a singing celebration hosted by Jo Sercombe. A fun day out.
