Nocton and District WI

New Website

You will see in my Companion Sites a new entry for 'Nocton and District WI'.

Much detail about this group's inauguration is contained in Chapter 17 of the publication: "Nocton - The Last Years of an Estate Village - Volume One" by Sheila Redshaw & Sue Morris. Further information is contained in Chapters 3 and 4 of Volume Two by Sue Morris. I understand there was also a scrap book that was made by Mrs Ireson to commemorate the formation of Nocton WI and the many years that followed.

The WI scrapbook was initially passed to Mrs Phyl Redshaw and then given to Mrs Eileen Moulds for safe keeping in 1992. I'm not sure of its whereabouts nowadays, but it would be nice to think that it has found its way to Nocton & District WI for the archive records.
