money at an Auction set for 6th October.
teams will be hunting high and low to find that money making item!
The groups must be back at The Princess for 11.30am with their
purchases. Other members of the WI will be on hand to share their
knowledge, with lots of information about what has happened over
the years since the first group was formed in 1915 in Wales.
