Comment St. Peter’s Church Institute Celebrations.

The donor of this photo Val Ryan tells us the purpose of the celebration is unknown. She comments, “It was obviously quite an important event as they are wearing flowers and the table is beautifully laid with all the best silver. The lady on the far left has also got a large bouquet. Note the way the ladies are nearly all wearing aprons (pinnies) to protect their Sunday best dresses.
