WI Olympic torch relay
WI GROUPS in North Somerset have been relaying a replica Olympic torch across the district.
Town and village WIs have taken part in the relay, which has been organised by the Avon Federation of Women’s Institutes and will have seen 110 WIs carrying the torch by the time it completes its journey in July.
Members of Portished, Portbury and Harbourside WIs gathered at Portishead’s marina to complete their stage of the route.
In Clevedon, members of Southern Clevedon WI received the torch from Clevedon WI at the town’s seafront before it was paraded to Clevedon Court.
It was then handed over to Tickenham WI members, who presented it outside the village hall before it was taken by classic car to Nailsea, where it was handed over to members of Nailsea Old Church WI at the Tithe Barn.
