Women’s Institute winners

Three women proved South Otago can do it all at the 101st New Zealand Federation of Women’s Institute annual conference held in Wellington recently.

Institutes from around New Zealand attended the conference and held their annual general meeting, along with a bit of competition and fun.

The women said they were surprised and delighted with the outcome and awards. The South Otago Federation acknowledged their achievements at a recent meeting and friendship day for all South Otago institutes.
