Seaford mums start young version of WI

A GROUP of mums have set up a younger version of the Women's Institute in Seaford.

Seaford Sweethearts, is a slight twist on the traditional organisation, and was formed by three friends to rediscover old and new crafts.

Sally Gasson, Helen Blaber and Jackie Colvin discussed the idea and since setting up the group the response has been impressive.

Sally, 32, said, "The three of us spend every Monday doing different activities and the more people we spoke to the more we found people were interested in learning to do new things."

As well as upholding some of the organisation's traditions such as learning to make cakes and jams, members are also hoping to have the chance to learn how to make cocktails and take part in various activities as well as getting the chance to meet new people and have a chat over a cuppa.

The group, which meets on the last Tuesday in the month at 8pm at Crossways in Clinton Place, is proving popular and Sally said their has been an enthusiastic response to the Seaford Sweethearts.

Most of the group is aged in their 30s but there isn't an age limit.

Taking part costs 3 a month or 29.50 a year.
