WI Summer Picnic 2018


Sunday 19th of August saw the first Poundbury WI Summer Picnic.

Acting President Emma Teasdale (Bonjour Cafe)

It was held on the lawn of the Duchy offices just across from the garden centre. A lovely afternoon was had by the WI members and their familys. With garden games, cream scones and a huge selection of savouries which were enjoyed by all.

There was a competition tent with cake, jam and flower categories. Judging the flower category was local resident Jay Cockett of Floral Couture by Jay.
