Centenary Baton Watch! … Leicestershire and Rutland

The Centenary Baton has recently been in Leicestershire and Rutland.

At Foxton Locks, there were 112 WIs representing the 144 WIs in the Leicestershire & Rutland Federation. WI members made bunting and joined it together along the flight of locks, holding it up between each WI for 300 metres. Some very ingenious bunting was produced with bras and knickers, while others were beautifully embroidered with colourful Institute names.

The Baton’s visit also included a flash mob (!) at the clock tower in Leicester.
