Centenary Baton Day!

Nearly 20 members of Crowlas & Ludgvan WI joined in the Centenary celebrations today, either at Land’s End or Marazion … or both … along with WI members from all over West Cornwall!

Helping to mark 100 years of the W.I. was a special opportunity for all of us, and not one we’ll forget! We all watched CFWI Chairman Barbara Corbett arrive in style, first in a shiny red Jaguar at Land’s End and then in a lovely old Astin Martin in Marazion.

We heard the Marazion Apollo Male Choir and the Heyl St Piran Singers. We enjoyed cake and more cake. We all had a chance to hold the baton. We heard talks by the Lord Lieutenant Edward Bolitho, by Mary St Levan of St Michael’s Mount and by our own current and former Federation Chairman.

And some of us even donned wetsuits and posed with the baton on the beach!
