Thursday, April 21 was a very special day - not just because it was was the 90th Birthday of the Queen, but also because it was Forton WI’s meeting!

As the two events coincided and to celebrate the Queen’s milestone birthday, Forton WI members donned their own crowns and raised a glass to toast Her Majesty before singing the National Anthem.

The photo shows members raising their glasses and also includes the evening’s speaker Pat Ascroft, who gave a talk about her epic trek dog sledding in the Arctic Circle raising money for MENCAP - an amazing story and everyone was full of admiration of Pat’s determination and strength of character.
