Edgerston WRI’s 85th birthday party was held at the Pheasant, Jedburgh, last Wednesday when 18 members and guests – including Liz Jackson, Roxburghshire federation chairman – enjoyed a festive lunch.
Edgerston WRI began life on December 7, 1927, and on that occasion 19 ladies were present. In those days members had to walk to meetings and, consequently, they were often cancelled due to bad weather.
The points cup was won by Marion Anderson; 2, Evelyn Grierson; 3, Maggie Greenwood. The chocolate cake baked and decorated by Sue Vind was cut and enjoyed, and presents were exchanged.
