On Saturday, 10 April, which was a lovely sunny Spring day, over 150 ladies gathered together with some excitement at Lymm High School to see and listen to three of the “original Calendar Girls”.
The ladies were not disappointed. The Calendar Girls, which included Angela whose husband’s death was the reason they made the calendar, spoke for almost an hour and their talk was both interesting and very amusing.
The event was organised by Egerton Group WI which consists of five WI’s in the Lymm, Thelwall and High Legh area. Linda Cram, Egerton Group Co-ordinator and Liz Wellbelove, President of Heatley WI co-hosted the event and the sum of £500 was also donated to Leukemia Research.
The Women’s Institute is the largest women’s organisation in the UK and they celebrated their 90th anniversary in 2005. You can join your local WI by contacting your local group or by contacting the Women's Institute for more information.
