Centenary Baton Journey

CLICK ON LINKS for photos of each location

The Centenary Baton was collected from Warwickshire Federation by NCFWI Board of Trustees at the Lord Leycester Hospital Warwick and there followed a week of fantastic WI events and get-togethers.
The Baton arrives in Northamptonshire!

The Baton visited Notable Sites in Northamptonshire which have been put on a memory stick inside the Baton and will be kept for posterity by National FWI. 
Photos of the Baton were taken near the home areas of Trustees, on a sunny Friday and a wet Monday! Sue Kendall, County Vice Chairman and Fran Mackenzie, President Denford WI, braved the Zip Wire at Wicksteed Park (photo by Alison Bagley, courtesy of Northants Evening Telegraph).

To reach as many members as possible, two members from each WI were invited to Chacombe, WI House Moulton (where the Moulton Morris Men entertained) or Ashley where the Baton was finally handed over to Leicestershire & Rutland Federation.
