Plaque on Save the Children Fund wishing well commemorates community worker Francis Eileen Craig (1896-1974).

In 1928 Francis joined the Western Australian branch of the Country Women's Association, and rose to be president of the southern division (1936-39) and State president (1939-44). In 1938 she was appointed M.B.E.

Inspired by the C.W.A.'s sponsorship of refugee children, in 1947 Frances had supported the introduction of the Save the Children Fund to Western Australia. She was its State chairman (1953-57) and national president (1968-69).
