Middlewood & Higher Poynton WI are the latest WI to respond to the President of the Cheshire Federation of WI’s challenge to plant a tree. This is to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Cheshire Federation in 2020. On Friday 8th November a group of members assembled on Middlewood Way to plant a Stellar Cherry tree. Ed Pilkington (one of the Cheshire Rangers) helped to organise the purchase and planting of the tree, which we hope will provide cherries for wildlife and the public for many years to come. We were delighted to welcome the Mayor of Poynton, Sarah Jane Gilmour and Alia el Asmar, the North East Cheshire President.
