Repton WI

Repton WI was formed on Thursday 20 June 1918 by Lady Fisher (wife to the headmaster of Repton School) with 55 members and from the beginning they worked together for the community they lived in. Worn out stockings and socks were collected to be converted into gaiters and mittens for the schoolchildren and on 16 Jan 1919, due to a shortage of coal every member brought a lump and a contribution to the tea.
