Morpeth CWA show off historic trinkets

From the Maitland Mercury report:
When Bev Bradfield married her husband 43 years ago a small doll was lodged on the bonnet of her bridal car announcing to the world a bride was on her way to the church.
Replaced with ribbons, bridal dolls are no more, and neither are a collection of other trinkets the Morpeth CWA will showcase during a special old-time luncheon.
There’ll be Enid Blyton books on show, hairdryers that came in a large carry case, salt and pepper shakers shaped into animal figurines and an ornate 70-year-old christening dress owned by branch president Heather Whyburn.
The Remember When luncheon will be held at the Catholic Hall in Morpeth on July 22. All are welcome.
