This year the WI is 100 years old and Institutes throughout England and Wales have organised events to mark this occasion. Ovingdean WI arranged to celebrate this milestone, together with our 37th birthday, by organising a picnic. One of our members kindly agreed to open her garden for this but due to inclement weather we had to change the venue. As Ovingdean Hall was in the throws of being refurbished, we moved to the hall at Holy Cross Church in Woodingdean. More than 70 members, including some from Rottingdean & Windmill and Woodingdean WIs, enjoyed the afternoon partaking of a lavish tea followed by entertainment from Musical Madness.
