The President, Kathleen Raven, welcomed everyone, especially 44 visitors, which included members from local WIs, friends and husbands who had come to help us celebrate our 100th Birthday.

This was our third birthday celebration as we had previously celebrated in April, our birthday month and in May, several members enjoyed a special Afternoon Tea at a local golf club.

Our speaker, Steve Scruton, retired radio presenter from BBC Essex, along with his assistant, Ian Wyatt, entertained us. He took us down Memory Lane playing tunes from old favourite radio programmes.

Everyone was treated to a wonderful array of cheese and wine refreshments, kindly supplied by members. There was also time to look at Rayne WI displays collected over the years, as well as catching up with all our visitors.

Our next meeting is on 3rd July when our speaker will be Andy Bennett talking on “60 Years Through the Eyes of a Vintage Austin Seven”.

Visitors are always welcome, so please come and join us.
