When I think of Over WI, it’s not of the meetings, outings or other good works, but of the excellent carnival floats for which it has become known.

Brilliantly conceived and executed by Melanie, supported by her husband Brian and friend Roger Denson, the WI float is always eagerly awaited, as we wonder what clever idea she has come up with. Following the theme set each year by the Carnival Committee, we have been treated to Ernie, The Fastest Milk Float in the West (1970s Music); Synchronised Swimming (Sport); and who can forget the Calendar Girls (Films). Great!

Well done, Melanie & Co – will be looking out for you next year. And thanks for the photos.
