Apart from some beautiful flowers and gardens there are exhibitions, shops and places to eat. The closing date to join the trip is Tuesday, March 22.

Maureen James, who deals with social media for Washington Concord WI, said: “It really is something to look forward to in the new year. There’s a little bit of apprehension, but we’ve just got to do what we’ve always done and take each day as it comes.

“The women always have a great day in Harrogate and now is a great time to join the WI. We’ve recently had lots of new ladies joining us. It’s always great to see new faces and it’s really all about friendship.”

There are 15 WIs dotted around Sunderland, Washington, Houghton and South Tyneside.
