Stoke Newington ladies adorn tree with pom-poms
The WI group decorated the tree to celebrate International Women’s Day.
A crack team of Stoke Newington WI ladies in mittens and hats adorned trees with homemade pom-poms and a knitted banner, to celebrate International Women’s Day yesterday.
President of the Women’s Institute Kate Azurdia, who arranged the yarn-bombing exercise in Albion Parade, said: “Lucy and Jacqui, our most nimble and courageous members, managed to scale to the top branches - all in aid of a good cause.
“Tuesday was the perfect crisp sunny morning for the residents and local passers by to wake up and marvel at the wonderful colourful sight that greeted them - I noticed a fair few smiles and photos being taken.
“It certainly got heads turning and tongues wagging,” she added.
