Rubery WI celebrates its 85th anniversary

MEMBERS of WI celebrated the group’s 85th anniversary with a special event at Beacon Church Centre.

More than 40 members attended the event which featured a special celebratory cake made by Marion Clifford and a buffet prepared by Susan O’Leary from village tea room Polly Put the Kettle On.

There was also a performance by Cherrywood – folk singing and guitar playing duo Sally Warber and Linda Birchall.

President Judie Fisher said: “We have been planning this celebration for more than ten months.

“We are a very proactive group who pride ourselves on getting things done for the community.”

The group supports a number of charities, including The Project at Longbridge and the neo-natal unit at Birmingham Women’s Hospital.

Members will also be yarn-bombing Rubery for the Bromsgrove Festival – decorating the village with knitted woollen items.

The group meets on the second Wednesday of every month at Beacon Church Centre from 7.30pm.

Anyone wanting more information should call president Judie Fisher on 07810 765314.
