Celebrate the forty-fourth
On Thursday 27 October it was time for Old Buckenham Women’s Institute to celebrate its forty-fourth birthday So husbands, friends, delegates from other local WIs and the county WI chairman were invited along to Old Buckenham Village Hall to enjoy the party. Members had been busy preparing a real finger buffet to be followed by the usual collection of mouth-watering sweets (that did need a spoon to eat them). Wine or non-alcoholic drinks were provided to wash it all down.
After the meal there was entertainment provided by members of the Old Buckenham Players with a collection of sketches that were ideal for the audience especially when they portrayed the church flower arranging group or the proposals for a forthcoming Old Buckenham WI calendar.
There was the usual large raffle and then the chance to have a piece of the beautifully iced birthday cake together with a glass of sherry.
