Frodsham WI’s big tree planting celebration

THE Cheshire Federation of WIs is celebrating 100 years of existence in 2020 and to celebrate this, each WI in the county was asked to plant a tree.
Frodsham WI thought it could do better than one tree – and planted 60 trees in various parts of the town in conjunction with Frodsham Town Council, the Friends of Hob Hey Wood and Castle Park Trust.
The trees, a mixture of cherry, rowan and silver birch were given free to the WI by The Woodland Trust.
Frodsham WI joint president, Vivien Shaw, said: “We thought planting trees was a brilliant way of marking Cheshire’s Centenary and we were keen to replace a copse of trees that was blown down or damaged three years ago. We hope in the future to see them growing and offering food and shelter to local wildlife.”
