ELY CITY WI SCORE SILVER!
Ely City WI have been awarded the prestigious title of ‘most increased membership over the past year’.
This is a great achievement and Federation Officers were delighted to present the Silver Salver at the November AGM. President Sheila Willson said “I am delighted that we have received this award. Our WI is continuously growing, so much so, we are having to move venue. With a rich and varied programme, we are always delighted to welcome new members”.
With over fifty members there does not seem to be any slowing down. One member commented “I am relatively new to Ely City WI but I am so glad I joined. I have been able to make new friends, try new things and be a part of many community events”.
Plans are in motion for a big celebration in 2024. 40 years of Ely City WI. “This is going to be another busy year,” said Sheila. “Our plans to mark the occasion are under way and we would love to have more members. If we can grow by twenty-five percent in just one year, then with a bigger venue and varied programme we can expand even further!”.
