WI Success at the County Show

On Saturday 22nd July the Glamorgan Federation of Women’s Institutes held its annual show at North Cornelly. The show comprised 19 classes showcasing such skills as baking, flower arranging, pottery, vegetable growing, art, photography and many more. The competition was open to all 112 WI’s in the County.

Ynysfach WI entered into 11 classes and met with considerable success. Liz Jones was awarded 1st place in the class for ‘an edible Christmas gift’, her beautifully decorated little cakes were also considered to be the ‘Best cookery item in the Show’ and therefore she was awarded the Swansea Cup.


Congratulations Liz!

Ynysfach also received first prize in the large co-operative class in which 2 craft items, 2 cooked items and a floral arrangement are displayed to interpret a theme.

This year it was ‘ A spring event ‘ and we chose to celebrate the Malvern Spring Garden Festival.
Our items were made by Maureen Allen, Cathy Graham, Liz Jones and Jenny Colley.

Our exhibit was selected as the best co-operative display in the show and we were presented with the Port Talbot Cup.

We picked up prize points in a total of 5 classes thanks to the hard work of Christine Davies, who was Highly Commended for her lemon and lime marmalade, Cathy Graham, Kay Evans, Wendy Herbert, Carol Jeffrey, Maureen Allen, Ann Gay, Ffion Thomas, Jenny Colley and, of course, Liz Jones.  We all enjoyed a wonderful day – Well Done Ynysfach WI!
