A Suffolk WI branch has celebrated 100 years in the community.

Members of the East Bergholt WI came together at Hintlesham Golf Club to celebrate their 100th birthday.

The group was started back in 1918 by women from the village.

Members and their invited guests were able to reminisce and raised a glass to starting the next chapter in their history.

Current president June Firmin said that the WI in East Bergholt “is as strong and active now as it was then”.
