Eastwood and Brinsley Womens’ Institute held its Christmas party at the Dora Philips Hall.
More than 30 members and guests from neighbouring institutes were given a warm welcome by the host, and club, president, Maureen Bradley.
There was a buffet and entertainment was provided by the Heanor Operatic Society who sang traditional Christmas carols and seasonal favourites.
A raffle of over 20 prizes provided funding for the group.
