Three sets of mothers and daughters - including a pair of identical twins - are among members of Elsenham Women’s Institute.

President Moyra Jackson had no difficulty in persuading her daughter, Lynsey, to join. Her own mother was a WI president in Scotland.

Sandra Smith and her daughter, Sam Briggs, are also active members.

Sue Waite has twin daughters, Kirstie and Kim. Having attended meetings as a guest, Kirstie became a WI member last year. Her sister, Kim is about to join too. Kirstie said: "The WI is about inspiring women of all ages and backgrounds to get involved in a way that suits them.

"I initially thought I was too young to join but once I saw the activities on offer, I realised that age is no barrier to sharing fun and friendship, I'm delighted that my twin sister will soon be joining and, one day, I hope my daughter will too."
