To celebrate its Centenary (1918-2018) Badby & Fawsley WI decided to mark the occasion by providing a bench for the Community to enjoy. On Friday, February 15, 2019, President Kathy Day, assisted by former President Kate Earley, cut the ribbon with members of the WI and Parish Council looking on. The Parish Council erected the bench on the village green by Chapel Lane, a popular spot for walkers returning from Badby woods.
Seated L-R: Ann Skinner, Treasurer; Kathy Day, President and Kate Earley, former President
The meeting on Thursday 14th February of Badby & Fawsley WI will be in the new social area of St. Mary’s Church, Badby. The meeting starts at 7:15 and all are welcome to join these lively meetings.
The change of venue is for February only whilst the Village Hall is undergoing work on a new kitchen.
