ANGLESEY WI members are branching out in more ways than one.

As part of the Natural Heritage Tree Project to preserve protect and plant urban trees members of Trearddur Bay WI planted a rowan.

The tree, which is already growing, has been planted in the side garden area of the Trearddur Bay Village Hall where the group meets on the first Wednesday of the month, from 2-4pm.

Much like their tree, the group is also growing. The club's membership has recently blossomed and it now has 31 members.

However, the group is always keen to hear from anyone new people interested in joining.

Club secretary Lynn Moore said: "We chose a Rowan, as they are native to Anglesey.

"They are a lovely tree, with bright red berries and they change colour, and very attractive."

She added: "We'd like to say thanks to the Holland Arms Garden Centre for donating the tree, to Kath and Chris Ronson, from Valley, for making and gifting us a pyrography plaque by the tree and to Simon Hannaby from GMS who dug the hole and staked the tree for us.

"We feel very proud to have such support from the community."

The Natural Heritage Tree Project is engaging WI members across Wales as champions of trees in their local communities. Members are supported to survey, observe, preserve, protect and engage communities in tree planning and on-going monitoring. They are also helping to raise awareness about the value of trees to the wider public.

Lynne added: "We'd love for more people to join us. Some think WI is only for the older ladies, but it is for all age groups.

"We are a very friendly group and have a fantastic programme of speakers lined up. WI it is a great way to meet people and make new friends."
