The Bexleyheath and Crayford Waterside Women’s Institute are marking 100 years since the formation of the WI.

They are celebrating the milestone by planting 100 daffodils in the gardens of Hall Place on Saturday.

The WI was formed in 1915 and is the largest voluntary organisation in the UK.

Barbara Cooper, president of Bexleyheath and Crayford Waterside WI, said: “Our idea is to share a lasting rememberance in flowers for all visitors to the Hall Place gardens to enjoy.

“Visitors will be able to see the bulbs we planted in full bloom next spring.”
