Chair of the club, Sue Atherton along with current long standing members and Anne Young, the wife of the late former president of the club Ken Young, planted the tree at a ceremony in Bodicote earlier this month.

The Tree was planted to recognise both the anniversary of the club and in remembrance of Ken.
