To celebrate the Centenary Year of the Women's Institute, St Hilary WI planted an acer tree in the St Hilary Pump Garden / No Man's Land on 16th September 2015 - the date in 1915 that the first WI was founded in Llanfair PG.  Members gathered for a ceremonial planting, complete with commemoration plaque.  A celebratory toast then took place in The Bush!!
