After being in existence for 89 years, Adderley and Shavington WI met for possibly the final time last week. There is a chance of a reprieve after members voted for a three-year suspension. If more people came forward during that time, the group may be restarted.
Three trustees were elected to oversee care of WI property. A cabinet with the the group's trophies will be installed in the village hall.
President Liz Jones thanked all members for their hard work over the years, including Mary Taylor, a member for 60 years, who organised the whist drives. There was a vote of thanks for Liz Jones, Jean Knight (secretary for eight years) and Ruby Bonell (treasurer for 24 years).
