Two Tarvin W I Events at the Start of 2015

Home » Newsroom » Two Tarvin W I Events

At our first meeting of 2015 on 28th January we were entertained by Mr Robert MacGregor, who relayed his experiences about 'The Magic of Toys'. He began his demonstration by doing a few magic tricks which had us all fascinated. He then continued by showing and telling us all about his love of old toys. It brought back many memories of our childhood and made for an interesting and enjoyable evening.

On Monday, February 9th, members of Tarvin W.I. and Tarvin Community Woodland Trust were present to commemorate the planting of Tarvin WI's Jubilee Oak tree. In 2012, the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, there was a scheme that enabled W.I. branches to obtain a young oak tree grown from an acorn on one of the Royal estates. Tarvin's tree has since been nurtured by former secretary, Alison Holden, until it was ready for planting. A position at the approach to the village at Austin's Hill has been selected and in future years it should become a landmark.

The 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. Irene and Alison planted the tree with assistance from 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".
