WI members from Northamptonshire braved the new Rush zipwire at Wicksteed Park in Kettering as part of a tour of the organisation’s centenary baton, which is making its way around the UK.

Fran MacKenzie, president of Denford WI, and Sue Kendall, WI county vice chairman, rode the 300 metre line on Sunday.

Mrs Kendall said: “The zipwire was brilliant.

“We had the baton for a week after receiving it from Warwickshire and handed it over to the Leicestershire federation on Tuesday.

“We took it to Silverstone and I visited lots of WI branches with it as well during the week.”
