CENTENARY SHOWCASE - MAY 2018

If you missed the fantastic Centenary Showcase at the Winding Wheel this month here is a flavour of the event

CENTENARY WALK AROUND ASHOVER - JUNE 2018

On the day of the DFWI Centenary Walk around Ashover over 70 members from all over the county (and beyond), gathered to enjoy a choice of walks, taking in the sights and history around our special village.
Afternoon tea in the Bassett Rooms was a lively affair, prepared and served by the Ashover WI Committee. An information board there on the Bassetts, added another dimension to local, historic characters.  
No event happens without a lot of planning and help,  but it was all worth it judging by the number of happy faces as people left - especially one member from Bamford WI who won the hamper of local Ashover and handmade goodies.
A huge thank you to everyone involved in making a great day happen. As one member has written 'A lovely way to celebrate the DFWI Centenary.'
