On Wednesday, the South Street WI celebrated its 60th birthday with a delightful afternoon tea, held in our usual meeting place of All Saints Hall, Whitstable. The meeting was well-attended and included a few visitors and some of the East Kent Federation women, also.
The committee and planners really worked very hard to make it look as perfect as possible. Each table had its own vase of flowers, as well as a tray of sandwiches and another of cupcakes.
Our master baker, Sally Cook produced these little cupcake beauties. We also had a lovely tray of scones, cream, and jam, so no one had to feel hungry or sugar-deprivation!
Just before we had tea, we heard stories from Peter Barnett, a former entertainer on cruise ships for several years. His stories were really humorous and made us all laugh.
Peter gave away three of his CDs in a sort of quiz format. Peter sings, dances, and directs shows in various venues. He really gave us all a lift for the afternoon.
We also had a raffle, which provided a lot of good healthy produce as prizes, as well as a box of chocolates. We hope the next 60 years will be as successful for South Street WI as the past 60 have been. We always welcome new members and hope they’ll come and grow with us.
