Ely WI

Ely City WI (ECWI) are no strangers to fun, appreciation and celebrating success.

With Easter already behind them and the glint of spring through the wet weather, Members have been delighted to forge forward into the new season with some well-deserved accolades (and trophies!) to those who have particularly shone over the past twelve months.

Not only are ECWI a creative, friendly, welcoming and active group; they are a rich and diverse alliance with many talents, interests and skills between them. Supporting many community groups and causes, Ely City took the time to reflect on their own achievements and their most recent meeting was one that observed those victories.

For outstanding Baking, the ECWI Rolling Pin was awarded to Helen Merrick. Second Place was Diane Banahan and third place Ruth Sindall.

The ECWI Craft Cup was awarded to Jane Blanks with second place going to Helen Merrick and third place Wendy Gammon.

The ECWI Presidents Cup was awarded to Helen Merrick. Second place went to Diane Banahan and third place to Patricia Canham.

The Sue Stuart Memorial cup for an outstanding contribution to Ely City WI was awarded to Veronica Stubbings.

A spokesperson said “each year we have the competitions that are part of the meetings, and every member can participate. This year has been a joy to celebrate, and the effort made by all participants has been second to none. Each of the award winners are so well-deserved and the atmosphere at presentation time was fantastic!”

Ely City WI have a full and varied programme over the coming months and, with so much to get involved with, are keen to grow their membership. They meet at Bishop Laney Sixth Form, Downham Road, CB6 2SH on the second Monday of each month, starting at 7.00pm until approximately 9.00pm. The next meeting will be on 13th May and will be a Sea Shanty Workshop with Stuart Green.
