I was invited, with a guest to attend a ceremony at Tatton Park where Hilda Gaddum, a member of Sutton WI and past Executive member, became Mayor Elect of Cheshire East. She is the seventh Mayor since the borough came into being in 2009.
Hilda left the ceremony to receive her gown and returned to the music of Jerusalem. She was then invested with her Chain of Office. In her speech giving thanks for her election Hilda thanked me as Federation Chairman for attending and referred to her life in the WI and explained the playing of Jerusalem, honouring our Centenary Year and 95 years of Cheshire Federation.
Jean Harding and I were proud to be representing our Federation at this event.
