Wakanui Women's Institute took out the annual Battle of the Bays in the Mid Canterbury Federation of Women's Institutes (WI) Home Industries Pavilion event at the Ashburton A&P Show.

The annual competition, themed Fire and Ice, was open to all eight WIs in Mid Canterbury, which also includes Temuka WI.

Lowcliffe was second and Hinds third.

It was a chance for the WI members to show their versatility using four items - whether floral, knitting, sewing, cooking or craft - in a display which this year had a "fire and ice'' theme. The Wakanui entry scored special awards for; their knitting, sewing and overall effect of their bay presentation.

Alongside the bay competition was the Rodd Trophy for over 65s, which this year was for a child's knitted cardigan (won by Mavis Wilkins, of Lowcliffe WI) and the tray competition for seeds (won by Netherby).

Members of the federation were also selling lillies at the show to help raise funds for St John.
