Chairman's Challenge

I am now launching my Chairman’s Challenge. As our Centenary takes place in 2020 I would like to ask every WI to plant a tree in their area, be it in the grounds of the hall they meet in or a public place in their community. If possible a plaque should be placed by the tree stating it was planted by your WI to mark Cheshire Federation’s Centenary. Imagine by 2020 Cheshire could have 200 more trees. I will look forward to receiving photographs of the planting of the trees and details of who did the planting. I do hope WIs will take up my Challenge as it would be lovely to see so many new trees in Cheshire. Jean Harding, Federation Chairman
