The WI

Hopwood WI enjoyed a day at Westminster after an invitation from MP Julie Kirkbride.  

She took the ladies (plus four husbands!) on a tour of the Houses of Parliament, giving the history as they progressed through The Queen’s Robing Room, the House of Lords, the House of Commons and the Hall of Westminster.

The guests also sat in on the afternoon debate in the Public Gallery in the Commons and visited the Jewel Tower, originally part of the Palace of Westminster. 

Ms Kirkbride told them it was a privilege and a thrill to work in such a wonderful setting.
