A NATIONAL baton relay to celebrate 100 years of the WI has reached Northumberland.

The National Federation of Women’s Institutes is marking its centenary next year and to mark the occasion each regional branch is capturing a snapshot of their area during a baton relay.

The Northumberland Federation received the baton from Cumbria last week and on Monday it reached its Cresswell House headquarters in Seaton Burn, where two members from each local branch were invited to an afternoon tea party.
