WI members from across the Skegness and Spilsby area joined in the celebrations to mark the 40th anniversary of the Lincolnshire North Federation of WIs.
WI members are renowned for their baking skills, so what better way to mark the occasion than with a traditional afternoon tea?
Members from across the federation - from Grasby in the north to Friskney in the south - donned their hats and something red for the ruby celebrations, where they were joined by representatives from the neighbouring Lincolnshire South and Lincolnshire Humber Federations.
“It has been fantastic,” said Federation chairman and Spilsby WI member Chris Morgan.
“I would like to thank everyone for joining in the event and making it such a memorable occasion. Thank you too to my fellow trustees for all their work in preparing for the event, especially Sara Carter, who led the way with her meticulous planning.
“It has been lovely seeing everyone enjoying the afternoon and sharing the friendship that is a cornerstone of the WI.”
Also attending the event were some of the previous federation chairmen, including the very first from 40 years ago, Betty Harvey.
