Merridge WI celebrates 50 years

JUNE saw the 50th birthday celebrations of Merridge Women’s Institute begin with a warm welcome by president Pam Pontin to visitors and members.

Pam then gave a short presentation on the 50-year history this WI branch.

Bonnie Sarten of the Yetties entertained everyone with folk songs from Dorset and also informed members of his work at Halsway Manor near Crocombe.

There followed a light meal and the cutting of a celebratory cake made and iced by Katie Edwards. Margaret Bigg gave a vote of thanks to Merridge for an enjoyable evening and the lovely meal.
