Sutton and Barnby Moor W.I.

When the W.I. met on Wednesday 18th of October 2023 in Sutton Village Hall, a good turn out was present to listen attentively as the guest speaker Janice Bradley informed the gathering of the Return of the Beavers. Not all present were aware of the proximity of the furry creatures which are beavering away locally. A very interesting and informative talk, which those present appreciated.

When the group next meet on Wednesday 15th November, it is the occasion of the group’s 75th Birthday Party. One not to be missed!!   Congratulations to all.
