WI Spotlight: Shropshire Federation
Show the Love, the annual climate change campaign which takes place around Valentine's Day every year has begun! While we can't get together to craft green hearts as we usually would, WI members have been showing off their innovation and creativity by coming up with ways to raise awareness from home. Shropshire Federation is running a green heart themed 'decorate your window' competition. Di Hill from Lyneal-cum-Colemere WI has incoporated nature into her beautiful green heart display, pictured here.
