50 Years of Carols for WI
On a bitterly cold December day there was a warm welcome at the Collegiate Church of St Mary in Stafford as the Staffordshire Federation of Women’s Institutes held their 50th Carol Service.
The Rev’d Danny Payne led the service with Trustees of the Staffordshire Federation giving readings that told the Nativity story. Margaret Outen provided the organ music to accompany well known carols that filled the church.
Helen Newman, Chairman of Staffordshire Federation of Women’s Institutes said, ‘Our Carol Service is a well-loved tradition and it is lovely to see so many WI members at this great church today. Coming together to celebrate Christmas is always a highlight in our calendar of events and it is wonderful to think that the Staffordshire Federation has achieved half a century of Carol Services. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I wish everyone a peaceful, happy Christmas’.
Winners of the Knighton Challenge Shield, Rolleston on Dove WI, were presented with the shield at the recent Forest and Vale Group Meeting. Pictured is Sue Fraser receiving the award from Chairman, Helen Newman.
