Quedgeley W.I. Celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday!

On Saturday 11th June 2016 Quedgeley W.I. celebrated the Queen’s  90th birthday year by planting a flowering cherry tree in St James’ church grounds.  We were delighted when Father John agreed to our request to plant the tree and he was there on the day to dedicate the tree which we hope will give pleasure to people visiting the church as it flourishes in years to come.  Our President, Pat Watts, added the last spade of earth at the ceremony, and a plaque will follow shortly to mark the occasion.  Afterwards the ladies of the W.I. went to the home of one of our members, Caroline Meek, and enjoyed a cream tea and a good natter in true W.I. style!  A lovely afternoon and fortunately the weather was kind to us and the rain came later to give our tree a good watering!

Update on our tree: March 2017, it’s covered in beautiful blossom!IMG-20170310-WA0000

A wonderful evening was thoroughly enjoyed by the ladies of Quedgeley W.I.
