Description
This cairn and parkette were created by Kemble WI, the oldest active WI Branch in the world, to commemorate the 110th anniversary of the WI movement. It was erected in a newly developed parkette/lookout and opened on September 11, 2007.
The cairn was designed by Marnie Cheyne. The table is made of marble and is set for a tea break, perfect for pondering, socializing, and business.
