Goosnargh and Whittingham WI celebrated its 94th birthday party with special 75 year presentations to members Helen Ashworth and Wyn Johnson by county federation chairman Shirley Thornton.

The pair, pictured, joined the branch in 1940 at the age of 14. Members Eileen Shepherd, Eileen Roberts and Doreen Hunter have also achieved 50 years’ continuous membership, making a total of 300 years’ membership for the five ladies.

The birthday cake was made and iced by Pat Wignall and after a delicious party food meal, Gertie Bucket entertained, concluding a memorable evening.
