Kathryn Hutson, East Sussex County Chairman, accompanied by three members from the Board of Trustees, travelled on a bright but chilly day to New Romney. After a short trip on the steam driven Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway from New Romney to Dungeness and back, the Centenary Baton was handed over to Kathryn by Marion Rose, County Chairman of Kent, East Kent Federation.

To top it off, a member of Worthing WI created this incredible Centenary Baton cake. The cake was raffled with the proceeds going to the establishment of a Denman bursary for local members.
