100th Anniversary of Sanderstead WI 

It was our 100th birthday in 2021 and we received this certificate of recognition from the NFWI on 15 March 2021. We will now be having a celebration next year for our 101st birthday.  We are creating a commemorative tablecloth with the names of current members embroidered on it and we had a picnic celebration on the Gruffy in the summer 2021.

The Platinum Jubilee Celebration Tea - 1 June 2022

We enjoyed a splendid cream tea  and were entertained by the superb band Sweet Harmony. Our Members’ efforts with planning, organising, baking, making decorations and serving the teas etc.  were much appreciated by everyone and special mention should go to Carol M for knitting the Queens for all the tables and to Linda E for the magnificent cake.  One lucky Member on each table won a Queen. 

We also all received a lovely purple leather bookmark to mark the occasion, embossed with the words Sanderstead WI, and our new Programmes for 2022-3.  Thank you Linda E for organising the bookmarks and  Sheila for the Programmes.

Our Christmas lunch was held on 11 March 2022 at Croham Hurst Golf Club

Margaret Q, our current President, until the end of March, welcomed us all and wore the purple Sanderstead WI sash knitted by Carol M.  Margaret handed this sash over to the incoming President Linda E.  who Joined Margaret in thanking the Committee members for their help in the organisation of this lunch, the Art ‘n’ Craft Group for the decorations, all thirty nine Members attending and Croham Hurst Golf Club for the splendid meal.
