Sandon WI hosted this year’s Mildmay Group Meeting in the WI’s Centenary year. We were treated to a lovely afternoon tea of sandwiches and cakes. The guest speaker was Doreen Potter who kept us all entertained with poetry and anecdotes.
The Competition Results are shown below and Little Baddow received the Lady Ritchie cup for gaining the most points overall in the three competitions which were Floral Display, Victoria Sponge Cake and an Invitation Card.
The five WI’s attending were from Boreham, Hadfelda, Little Baddow, Sandon and Springfield. All the members came suitably dressed for a Posh Tea and wearing hats. The member’s outfits were judged by our guest speaker, Doreen Potter, who chose Virginia Strange from Hadfelda as the lady wearing the best outfit.
The afternoon was enjoyed by all and was a great success.
