Eynsham WI Market

Eynsham WI Market (3 May 1984)

VILLAGERS in Eynsham can look forward to a weekly market from now on - courtesy of the Women’s Institute. It will be held every Thursday from 9.30 a.m. in St Leonard’s Church Hall, selling plants, produce, toys and gifts. The first market was opened by WI member Mollie Harris, who plays Martha Woodford in The Archers radio serial.

Deputy market controller Mrs Eve Hollis said: ‘We had a wonderful response. All the produce was sold out within the first half hour.’ Mrs Harris, left, is pictured with Mrs Olga Gush, chairman of Eynsham WI’s market society and Mrs Jane McHarg, market controller.
