Colehill WI added a plaque to a tree they had planted in the Queen’s Silver Jubilee year. The Norway maple was dug into the ground on 26 November 1977 and is now a substantial tree.
It was decided to add the plaque to celebrate the 50th birthday of Colehill WI, which will take place in May.
Several members who took part in the original tree planting were present to see the plaque added: Sue Kerslake, Rosemary Hardy, Avril Hayes, Linda Hargreaves, Sylvia Hinves and Ann Clayton – who can be seen wielding the mallet.
Colehill WI’s 50th birthday party will take place on 13 May at the local memorial hall. The WI is also having a lunch at a secret venue on 20 May to celebrate 50 years of fun and friendship.
The June meeting will be on 10 June and is An Audience with A Red Arrows Pilot – John Myers.
