Magna carta - Libertea

People up and down the country were invited to have their own LIBERTEA, to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta.  Maybe not quite the event that the Queen is going through at this moment, but nevertheless worth doing.

 We celebrated in style, members made recipes that will appear in our Recipe Book being published later this year - to celebrate 90 years of WI in Hollingbourne - such things as Salmon and Dill Pancakes, Thai Crab tartlets, Strawberry cheesecake, sausage plait and Lemonade scones to name but a few.
 Partners and friends were invite to Hollingbourne Meadows (The wonderful area belonging to the trust, which allows villagers to stroll and enjoy the peace of the area. Trees can also be purchased to dedicate to others, and it  also means that these areas will never be built upon)
We started with Rudyard Kiplings poem What say the Reeds at Runnymede? read by  Jim, Penny, Peter, Val and Alan.

and once the solemnities were over, we enjoyed the food and the ambiance and everything soon disappeared. Well worth the effort.
