COLLECTOR Ann Arnold opened her boxes of memories for Culcheth WI.

The contents revealed treasures from the past including voluminous bloomers, terrifying corsets, dainty handkerchiefs, nylons from the 40s and toilet paper varying from newspaper squares on string to superstore latest.

Her talk "A Lifetime Collection", assisted by Margaret Scott, brought laughter and lots of reminiscences.

Tickets are still available to join Newchurch WI on a trip to the Chocolate House at Burnley and a visit to Norwich on May 7 for bread making and flower arranging demonstrations.
