Centenary Service of Evensong for the Herefordshire Federation of Women’s Institutes

I attended this service on 9th February in Hereford Cathedral.  The Dean took the service and gave the sermon.  As always, the service was enhanced by fine singing by the cathedral choir.

The many branches of the WI in Herefordshire were represented and their record of providing educational opportunities for women and cohesion and support across the county was fully recognised and applauded.  Val Lewis, the Federation Chairman, invited me to stay on for tea and cake, something for which the WI is also justly celebrated.
