It was a wet afternoon when the WI was booked for a garden tour of The Grange, a local training establishment for disabled people. The tour was abandoned but the cream tea in the former ballroom went ahead as planned. We had a film telling us about the work of this charity and a blind resident entertained us in a beautiful tenor voice. We visited the new Heritage Room where we admired examples of early needlework. The Grange was called ‘The School of Stitchery and Lace’ when it was founded eighty years ago.
My blip shows a small window high up in the wall of the ballroom.
