This picture has been sent to us by Megs Graham-Rack and shows Holton le Moor WI of the 1940s.

And this year, the group has celebrated its 95th anniversary - see page 13.

On February 14, 1918, Miss E S Guest, a Canadian, from WI Organising Centre in London, arrived at Holton Station by the 2.09 train.

She addressed some 40 women that afternoon in the Moot Hall, after which it was agreed to form a WI, 30 women signing their names as willing to become members.

The first meeting was held on February 28, 1918.
