A Suffolk WI branch has celebrated 100 years in the community.

Members of the East Bergholt WI came together at Hintlesham Golf Club to celebrate their 100th birthday.

The group was started back in 1918 by women from the village.

In addition to the centenary lunch a book is being written about the history of the institute which will capture its key milestones and events across its history.
