In issue No 6 of @ Sheringham there was a small notice from the Press Officer of Sheringham Evening W.l. regarding Jam Jars. I would further like to clarify her comments and explain the unique status of W.l. Markets. There seems to have been a bit of controversy regarding the W.l. and the W.I. Market and JAM JARS. These two institutions are quite distinctive individual bodies but with an association dating back to 1919. The first W.I. Market stall was established in Lewes, West Sussex in that year. It was a co-operative set up to enable W.I. members, unemployed people, pensioners and ex-servicemen to sell surplus garden produce. This continued until 1932 when the National Federation of Womens Institutes was asked by the then Ministry of Agriculture to assist in feeding the Nation by increasing the amount of home-produced food. The result was the formation of the National Markets Department; the aim to increse the number of W.I. Markets. There are now more than 500 markets trading! The W.I. constitution does not permit regular trading with the public so markets could not be financed from W.I. Funds. A grant was made by the Carnegie U.K. Trust to finance and develop markets. One of the conditions being that membership must be open to both W.I. members and non-members. This is still the policy today. Anyone, male or female, over 16 years of age can apply to become a shareholder. THE COST OF A SHARE IS 5p. Due to legislation the Markets, because of their profit making potential had to become separate from the W.I. Federation. We do, however, still pay quotas to W.I. County Federation and the N.F.W.I. Markets Department. A W.I. representative attends the Norfolk Markets County quarterly meetings and there is still close liaison at National level. Several shareholders at Sheringham W.I. Market are active W.I. members, some are officers in their respective Institutes. That they do not attend the Sheringham Evening meetings is really a matter of logistics. Although the W.I. is renowned for jam making, it is the W.I. Market in Sheringham, which is always in need of jam jars. They can be deposited at the Market any Thursday morning between, 10.00 am and 11.30 am at St John Hall, Wyndham St. or if it is more convenient to have them collected just ring 822672 to make arrangements. Hope this clarifies what I know has baffled some people for some time and that our friends in the W.I. Institute will not be overwhelmed by a jam jar mountain in future.

After our article about Teresa Bellingham in Issue 13, THE TYNESIDE CLUB have started the ball rolling by donating 250.00 towards the cost of sending Teresa to Brainwaves in Somerset.

Teresa Bellingham only 4 years old, was born with Cerebral Palsy and Diabetes. Brainwaves offers treatments such as physiotherapy, musical keys therapy, horse riding, colour and light therapy etc. It's the type of treatment where you need to return regularly to gain any real benefit from the treatment. So at over 400 a time they need help to raise this money.

If you would like to help Teresa get to Brainwaves, please contact Liz on 820933.

NB. In our article the bottom photograph was of Liz, Teresa's mum and Andrew Baker.
