Centenary Tree Planting

Nov 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On a cold and damp November day and the day after the Nation celebrated the Centenary of women gaining the vote, some members congregated to plant an Amelanchier tree to celebrate the centenary of the formation of C.F.W.I. 

The Federation Chairman, Jean Harding, and the Chairman of Comberbach Parish Council,John Ryder, officiated. The preparation and digging of the hole was done by Tony Rowe, Rosie's husband and his certainly was the hardest job.

Macclesfield Visit. March 2017


23 Members enjoyed a visit to the Silk Museum in Macclesfield. They were welcomed with coffee and home made cakes before enjoying a tour of the mill. They were shown how the looms worked, and the production of the silk from the worm cocoons. They then had some free time to look around the museum before leaving for Arighi Bianci where they were greeted by Mr Paul himself. Everyone enjoyed a wonderful lunch. The shop is enormous but every one was able to find the cafe !! Agood trip.
