WRVS Luncheon Club Easter Tradition

The Easter Bonnet Parade

By Janet Penn

The Easter Bonnet Parade has been an annual event at the club ever since it started. As you can see by the last picture below it is still popular.

The following pictures are mostly from before the new building in Poplar Road was opened in 1987 and are from the only album to survive the fire that gutted the club a few years ago.

I would like to thank the WRVS for allowing us to publish them.

More pictures and stories of the WRVS can be seen here.
