Photo SuppliedWomen’s Institute stalwart Jude Vaughan was the unsuspecting recipient of a WI Good Service Badge recently. Mrs Vaughan was surprised when the award was presented at the Mid Canterbury Federation of WI’s annual general meeting after a secret nomination by her peers at Lowcliffe WI. And for the past seven years has been on the Mid Canterbury Federation holding positions of president, minute secretary and federation secretary.
