A WILMSLOW women’s group sowed the seeds of peace with a floral display to mark United Nation’s International Day of Peace.
Soroptimists marked the day by planting white flowers of peace in the tubs along Grove Street.
The group, who tend the tubs regularly, marked the day by calling for an end to conflict across the globe.
And true to their pledge to advance the human rights and status of women, they joined Soroptimists across the UK in sending 1325 postcards to Downing Street.
The act is a reminder to the Government over UN resolution 1325, to examine how conflict affects women.
Spokesman Marguerite Welch said: "The vision for the day is that the cessation of violent conflict has to be pursued and to focus on supporting children and young people in understanding peace in order that they can face the future with confidence. Every contribution world wide can make a difference - little strokes fell great oaks."
And the Soroptimists, who some time ago volunteered to take responsibility for the regular weeding and upkeep of planting tubs on Grove Street, have asked residents to treat them with respect.
Marguerite said: "We are somewhat dismayed by the items that find their way into these tubs, even through there are waste bins nearby for the disposal of rubbish."
