About this object
Country Women's Institute banner showing the Guild Aspiration:

Keep us, oh lord from pettiness, let us be
large in thought, word and deed.
Let us be done with fault - finding and
self seeking.
May we put away all pretence and meet
each other face to face without self pity
and prejudice.

May we never be hasty in judgement
and always generous.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses
straight forward and unafraid.

Let us take time for all things; make us
grow calm, serene and gentle; grant
that we may realise that it is the little
things that create differences, that in
the big things of life we are one.

And may we strive to touch and
know the great women's heart of us
all, and o Lord, let us not forget
to be kind.
