Dear All ,
As you may be aware, one of the highlights of Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations will be The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant on Saturday 3 June. As part of this, Battersea Park on the south bank of the river Thames will be hosting a festival and some of the local WIs have been invited to host a WI marquee.
While its not possible for every member to attend the event keen knitters are needed!
