A TALK about the history of women’s underwear proved a bloomin’ success.
The Hastings Ore Women’s Institute met at Christ Church Hall in Ore last week to listen to a talk by guest speaker Naomi Lane. Noami brought in a large selection of items for people to look at including old liberty bodices, panty girdles and French knickers. members presented cheques to representatives from the two charities. A cheque presentation of £250 was also made to St Michaels Hospice and Charity For Kids. The money was raised last year through activities such as bazaars and stall sales of books, crafts and preserves. The group will be taking part in the ‘Fat Tuesday’ Festival. Tea, cakes and other delicious sweets will be available from 11-3 at the Jenny Lind on Saturday March 1,
