Littleport Women’s Institute Takes a trip Down Memory Lane

How many people remember the WI Concert Party? We thought about it and decided it was a good idea. It was a great success! There were 20-25 members involved.

This year has sadly seen both the professional theatre companies and theatres go dark during the lockdown scenarios. And perhaps even worse, all the amateur groups have had their efforts curtailed and their local communities thus deprived of home-grown live entertainment. Here is…
