This weekend members from 15 local Women’s Institutes will meet to show off their skills at the Clitheroe and District WI show.

This year the show will be held at All Saints School in Clayton-le-Moors as opposed to Edisford Primary School in Clitheroe where a new central heating system is being installed.

Held on Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, there will be displays of horticulture, cookery, and crafts.

Admission is £2.50 and refreshments will be served.

The details of the show were discussed at this month’s meeting of Slaidburn WI during which members of the charity Blood Bikes spoke. Blood Bikes riders transport items such as blood, drugs and breast milk for new babies and patients’ notes from one location to another.

The organisation is a charity which depends on donations plus the time and expertise of motorcyclists.

A competition was run to guess the number of trips made in the four years Blood Bikes has been running. It was won by Mrs Jane Lewis of Newton-in-Bowland who guessed 24,000. The service saves the NHS money which would otherwise be used on taxis.

The vote of thanks was given by Kath Mason. It was also announced that a preview evening for the county show is on September 20th.
