A new force is at work in St. Leonards, spreading like a wonky wave through the town.
Women everywhere are dusting off their pinnies, capping their jam jars and slamming the oven door on their victoria sponges in their haste to to join a new branch of the venerable Women's Institute.
No, that's not a typo, the group's official title is the Wonky WI and they held their inaugural meeting on Tuesday, with almost 70 keen acolytes turning out to see what it was all about.
Sadly I only got to hear about it yesterday, too late to attend, but I've registered my interest and will definitely be at the next meeting.
Incidentally, the 'Wonky' bit has apparently been sanctioned by the WI.
