A NEW plaque has been installed at Portbury Village Hall to mark the 80th birthday of the village’s WI.

Members of Portbury WI unveiled the addition as part of the growing group’s anniversary celebrations.

President Sally Nicol said: “The WI has experienced a resurgence of interest in recent years as women realise just what the WI can offer them.”

This year the National Federation of Women’s Institutes will mark its 100th birthday and the Avon Federation its 40th.
