It was a proud moment for members of WITHNELL FOLD WI when, on 12th April 2021, they were able to hand over a new defibrillator to Chorley Community First Responders for use in the local Community.
They had long dreamed of being able to do this, but lockdown put paid to their usual fundraising activities. However, WI members are not easily put off by a challenge and, by a variety of ingenious fundraising activities, including a marathon challenge; a socially distanced afternoon tea and a “name the mascot” competition, they raised an incredible £926.
Milnrow and District WI wine appreciation group, aptly named the MaD Plonkers, managed to gatherer in 3 smaller groups for their monthly tasting. This time 3 Pinot Grigio wines were sampled and compared... and declared to be "very good"!
Members of Hutton and Howick WI met in the local cafe, time to catch up over coffee, while creating butterfly brooches and greetings cards.
