Horringer and Ickworth Women’s Institute (WI) will celebrate their centenary with a special exhibition in April.

The centenary celebrations will take place at 11am at St Leonards Church in Horringer, which sits alongside the historic Ickworth Park.

The celebration, on Thursday, April 5, will be followed by refreshments and the unveiling of the exhibition at Horringer Community Centre.

There will also be an unveiling of the WI donated bench, which will be located on the village green.

The WI and the exhibition demonstrate the forward thinking and development of their members with its many resolutions and campaigns from 1918 to the present day, inspiring women to complete significant achievements in every sphere of life, from the humble heart of the home to flying in space.
