It was a fun-filled, floral themed gathering of the Mountfitchet Group WI at their annual meeting.

Made up of the WIs of Stansted, Manuden, Elsenham and Ugley, more than 100 women wearing floral dresses and hats adorned with flowers for a competition, attended the event hosted by Manuden at the village hall.

The evening allows the groups to mix, share stories and make friends as well as enjoy a guest speaker - Nick Grounds, horticultural auctioneer and flower arranger, delighted the crowd with his “magnificant arrangements” and entertaining tales. And he then donated his displays as raffle prizes.

An exhibition of Manuden WI’s records and memorabilia from the last 100 years also added to the sense of occasion as it marks its 100th anniversary this year.

Jane Tresadern, President of Manuden WI, said: “The WI is all about inspiring women in a whole variety of ways. We all enjoyed learning how to create dramatic flower arrangements as well as sharing fun and laughter with our friends.”
