WI with pictures of the past
Melton Times, February 1, 2001

Wymondham WI has completed a Millennium project to photograph buildings in the village.

Nine members grabbed their cameras to compile A Photographic Record of the Buildings of the Village of Wymondham, April 1999 to March 2000, which is now on display in the local studies area of Melton library.

Members carried out the study as a contribution to the National Federation of Women’s Institute’s Millennium project.

The record includes pictures of barns, bridges, churches, cottages, schools and even the sewage treatment works in Wymondham.

The 15-month project received a grant from the Melton Millennium Fund and WI members say they hope it will provide source materials for local historians, architects and planners as well as being of general interest.
