Scholes WI

Scholes (Leeds) village Gala Committee asekd Scholes WI to choose the therem for the 2015 Village Gala, as it was the WI Centenary they decide to highlight the campaign work done by the WI and chose the SOS for Honey Bees campaign.

Their President Helen Bainbridge opened the Gala and the Gala Queen was crowned by the longest serving Scholes WI member Eileen Woodhead.

Scholes WI has supported the village gala for many years by running a tombola stall.  Members decorate the stall and dress up to match the theme.  Last year they won first prize for the 'Tour de France' stall and this year as you can see below won 2nd prize for the 'SOS for Honey Bees' stall and raised over £200 for Scholes Village Hall funds

Well done to all at Scholes WI, it looks like they had a great day at the Village Gala.
