Tarvin W.I. Jubilee Oak 2012

The Woodland folk have been busy again, this time helping Tarvin W.I.

Back in 2012, Diamond Jubilee year there was a scheme to distribute oak trees, grown from acorns on the royal estates, to W.I. branches. Tarvin's tree has since been looked after by former secretary, Alison Holden, until it was ready for planting. It was considered that a tree that would last for generations should be planted in a prominent position, so eventually the approach to the village at Austin's Hill was selected. In future years it should become a landmark.

On Monday, February 9th, members of Tarvin W.I. and Tarvin Community Woodland Trust gathered to commemorate the planting of the village's Jubilee Oak tree. Current president, Irene Wilkinson, said that the tree not only celebrated the Queen's Jubilee but also the 90th birthday of Tarvin W.I. and the memory of former members.

The tree was planted by Irene and Alison assisted by Tarvin Tree Warden and Woodland Trustee, Peter Maiden, and Trustee John Sim.
Trustees subsequently positioned a tree guard donated by the Trust. A brass plaque says "Tarvin W.I. Jubilee Oak 2012".
