WOMEN’S Institute members connected to the Westley Group, comprising Ilkeston, Morley, Smalley, West Hallam, Heanor, Loscoe and Breadsall, have staged a Royal Command performance to herald the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Each year WIs take it in turns to put on entertainment at the group’s annual meeting.

Heanor WI, led by Trish Wilcockson, chose to put on a variety show at the community hall in Wilmot Street, and with friends from Eastwood and Brinsley WI playing their parts, they served up a treat.

Trish, who compered, heaped praise on the performers: “We have had such fun and everyone taking part has shown star quality. The WI movement in the Westley Group is one to be proud of. Long may we reign!”
