Tuesday 14 February wasn’t just Valentine’s Day, it was also Crantock WI’s 70th birthday celebration! As well as the usual superb tea, the members took the opportunity to plant a native birch tree to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Crantock WI meets in their local village hall, and Frank and Janet Cox, Chairman and Secretary of the Village Hall Committee, kindly accepted the offer to plant the tree in the playing field by the Hall. Crantock WI member Gail Wilson read a passage about the significance to the WI of planting a birch tree before Frank placed the soil on the tree.
After that, they all enjoyed a wonderful tea. A big thank you to Sue Stevens who sourced and arranged the planting of the tree.
