Roecliffe WI news
This year has seen Roecliffe WI’s most successful ever Great Yorkshire Show entries. We gained the most points overall, beating many other larger WIs. Our entries were very varied, including preserves, cakes and items of craft, as can be seen in the photographs. Our members have a tremendous array of skills and experience and it is pleasing to see them recognised in such a public arena.
In September, the National Federation of Women’s Institutes celebrates its centenary, and Roecliffe are marking this momentous occasion by inviting all the village to join us on September 11th- first on the village green to plant a commemorative tree and then in the school hall for wine, cheese and centenary fruit cake. Within the village, in the 82 years of its history, Roecliffe WI has been instrumental in pressing for (and winning) many innovations including a Parish Council, footpaths, streetlights and bus services as well as providing friendship, activities and education to many women. Why not come and join us?
