HISTORY OF INSTITUTE

  

Sea Palling Waxham and District Women’s Institute was first established in March 1968. Sea Palling W.I. was in fact started in  1928, convening in the village hall as now, put on hold during the war years, as were most W.I.s. It also incorporates the village of Horsey whose institute was established by Mrs. Anthony Buxton of Horsey Hall also during the 30’s. The meetings in Horsey then convened in the Village Hall (A small tin hut in the triangle), The Street, Horsey. Since Horsey’s meeting place was demolished, the W.I. of Horsey then became part of Sea Palling and Waxham.

Our Presidents tablecloth, (featured at the top of the page) was made by our members. In December 1979 we held a competition and the one produced came from a combination of two designs. The embroidery is roughly a representation of the four seasons. This was compiled and ready for presentation at the March Birthday meeting 1980. September 2006 we had another competition with each member having to embroider their name on a piece of cloth to be attached to another tablecloth, thus being a visible. reminder of members past and present. The competition, won by Monica Green was not only her name but a beautiful picture, all hand embroidered, (and Monica is one of our older members), and having been a member for a good many years
