Members of Ely City's Women's Institute said they were delighted to be able to meet for the first time in a year and a half.

After 18 months away, members were able to meet again face-to-face earlier this month.

President Sarah welcomed everyone back to the Old Dispensary and also welcomed seven visitors, one of whom joined on the night.

Sheila invited members to take part in various craft activities: poppies for Remembrance, green hearts for the environment and red, white and blue decorations for the Jubilee in June 2022.

Sarah then gave a demonstration of macrame after which members had a go at making a simple keyring.
