Whittlesey Women’s Institute members lined up for the camera as the group celebrates its 100th anniversary.

During the course of the year the members of Whittlesey WI are celebrating the milestone with a number of events.

In April local magician Ricky Locke kicked off the party celebrations while at the most recent meeting members gathered for the official photograph for the archives.

Other events for the year include a WI exhibition at Whittlesey Library and the unveiling of an embroidered WI wall covering in St Marys Church.

Produce stalls are the main staple of the WI and the ladies will be involved at the Whittlesey Festival in September and the town's extravaganza in December. A WI outing is also planned for September.
