Dozens of members of a village WI group gathered on Saturday to celebrate the 65th anniversary of their branch.

Ladies from Weldon WI met at the village hall where they enjoyed a buffet, refreshments a cake baked by current president Penny Tighe and reminiscing about events from years gone by.

The group’s longest serving member, Jo Green, attended the event as well.

She said: “I can remember cutting the cake here at Weldon Village Hall at the group’s 21st birthday, in 1969.”

Mrs Tighe said: “We are an active group of about 35 or so members. Most of the members are from Weldon come along from Corby.”
