Handcross Women's Institute 75th anniversary

To celebrate its 75th anniversary, the Handcross Women’s Institute decided to create something special. The reverse of this postcard reads as follows:
“The actual 5’ x 8’ collage, depicting the area, framed and mounted in the Parish Hall, was created and presented to the local community by members of the Handcross Women’s Institute on the occasion of their 75th Anniversary, January 1918–1993.”
Many of the buildings and landmarks I can recognise, but some I cannot, but it is still entertaining trying!
Each brick in the wall in the foreground has the name of a W.I. member, of whom I can spot Glad Fraser, Daphne Gates, Eileen Leadbetter, Margaret Stafford, and Nora Ray.
The Large Version shows a close up.

My Nana, Edith Boxall, is on there too. Her house is on the left with the green door.
I hope this lovely collage finds a home in the new Parish Hall, wherever it may be, as I think it's a very special piece of Handcross history.
