Once in a lifetime opportunity!

Next year the Leicestershire and Rutland Federation of WIs is 100 years’ old.  You can join in these unique celebrations on Saturday 18 March 2018 at Bruntingthorpe (it’s even on our side of the county).  Tickets £14 and the event is for WI members only (it should be a huge event as all the WI members in the 2 counties are invited).  So put the date on your calendar now and get together with other MHWI members to make a memorable day of it.  Full details of times and speakers attached: ACM 2018 flyer
