Bulphan WI celebrate 94th anniversary with a party

MEMBERS of Bulphan WI, including three new joiners, visitors and guests, celebrated the 94th anniversary of the formation of the WI with a village fete-themed party. 

Participlants enjoyed a sumptuous afternoon tea, entertainment from the Rumford Morris team and had the chance to choose a mystery gift from the pick a bag haul.

May saw another jam (excuse the WI pun) packed meeting, starting with a visit from two of the fundraising team at St Luke’s Hospice who updated the group about their newest centre in Thurrock and invited rmembers for a visit.

This was followed by an interesting discussion, lead by FEWI Resolution Coordinator Laura, on the 2023 NFWI resolution – ‘Clean Rivers’, where members found out that Bulphan business and farms with licences were well behaved. It is hoped we can use this as an example to encourage other areas to be the same.

At the annual meeting, a report was given heard in branch finances, followed by a reminder of meetings and events over the past year. The committee received a thank you from Pat H, and Janice Curtis thanked the committee and members for their help in making the WI such a vibrant and welcoming one. 

Long service certificates were presented as was the coveted competition cup, this year’s winner was Sally W. The elections for the committee and president took place.
