Staffs WIs on the oche for darts grand final

There is no end to the talent of members of the Women's Institutes around Staffordshire - last week was the Grand Final of the Darts Competition, held at Amasal Social Club, Stafford.

The winners - Blythe Bridge WI

Teams had competed in a north/south knock-out competition between September and May which culminated in a fiercely competitive final match. The overall winners were Blythe Bridge WI who beat last year's winners Whittington WI by 3 legs to 2.

The highest score for the competition was 119, thrown by Nina Sloane of Bishops Wood WI and the team from Bishops Wood WI were there to give their support to the finalists.

Staffordshire Federation of Women's Institutes hold a darts competition annually and the organiser, Trustee Rose Dyche said: "The final is always a highlight of the year with teams of all level of skill coming together for evenings of laughter and friendship - with delicious refreshments on offer".
