Most of us are having to adapt to a very different and constantly changing world. We are realising that we are all vulnerable…

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.

They clapped when things were right and even louder when things went horribly wrong. Doreen…
