N1 Women’s Institute has marked its 10th anniversary by providing a bench in the St Mary’s Church garden.

The group, which meets in St James’ Hall, Prebend Street, wanted to give Islington a practical and permanent tribute to the Women’s Institute movement.

President Rosie Harvey said: “After fundraising over the last couple of years, the majority of which has been done in typical WI-fashion of selling homemade cakes and biscuits, we’re so pleased to finally have our commemorative bench in place just up the road from where we meet at St. James’ Hall.

“We’re very proud to be one of the oldest London WIs and we’re looking forward to another ten years of educating and empowering women – and getting involved with our local community.”
