Centenary Baton Watch! … Essex

Last week the baton was handed off from the East Suffolk Federation to the Essex Federation.

Pat Pratley, Essex Federation Chairman, receives the Baton from Jane Collier, Chairman of the East Suffolk Federation, at Cattawade Bridge.

The baton stopped in Chelmsford, where Joanna Starr of New City Girls WI dressed as a town crier and posed with it. We hear there were lots of ladies, lots of cake and lots of Jerusalem.

In Southend, the baton was escorted down the pier by members of Southend Sisters WI and Westcliff-on-Sea WI.
