The Buckinghamshire WI are unveiling a new book to celebrate their centenary.
The Buckinghamshire Village Book is compiled by the Buckinghamshire Federation of the Women’s Institutes to celebrate 100 years since their launch in 1920 and in association with publisher Countryside Books.
The Buckinghamshire Village Book (ISBN 978 184674 3948 – price £12) gathers together descriptions and illustrations of over 100 villages, recalling the history, people and events that make each one unique and how their collective identity has shaped Buckinghamshire as a county.
Pat Poole, the WI’s county chairman, co-ordinated the project for the WI and has organized an Autumn ‘Gifts Galore’ shopping event on Wednesday 28th October 2020 to launch the book to members. The book will also be available to the public from all good bookshops and outlets from Monday 2nd November 2020.
Alex Batho, the publisher at Countryside Book,s said: ‘This is a gem of a book – a real insight into the beating heart of an amazing county, written by the people who know it best. It’s also an ideal present, something to dip into over the winter months.‘
