Centenary celebrations in Old Buckenham

One hundred years ago today
The first WI meeting in the UK was held in Llanfairpwll on Anglesey, Wales, on 16 September 1915.  Since then, the organisation has grown to become the largest women's voluntary organisations in the UK with over 212,000 members in 6,600 WIs. 
To celebrate this occasion, Old Buckenham Women's Institute has had various events during the year and today several members gathered at All Saints Church to ring the church bells in a centenary celebration. 
Rather random notes were rung and a new 'skill' was experienced by those who took part.
