Centenary Tree Planting
Centenary Tree Planting Ceremony
It was our privilege to welcome our special guest, Councillor and Deputy Mayor, Mr David Yarrow, and the Deputy Mayoress, Mary O’Connor who kindly agreed to perform the Tree Planting Ceremony, he was joined by four Hillingdon Councillors. Coincidently Ruislip Residents Association also celebrates its Centenary this year and we were pleased to also welcome its Chairman, Mr Graham Bartram.
Peter Andrews, RBC's President, said
"reaching the Centenary milestone is, by any yardstick, a notable achievement, but that figure is magnified, a hundred fold, if viewed through the eyes of the thousands of members (both past and present) whose lives have been enriched, from membership of our Club. Currently our membership is amongst the largest in the club's history. Hundreds of individual games, plus dozens of club and interclub competitions are played each season. However, none of that history, none of that adventure, would have been possible without the support of our Local Authority, their contribution, their active support echoes thoughout that journey. Indeed it has been at the cutting edge every step of the way.
So what could be more symbolically appropriate to demonstrate that union than a Tree, which represents, through root - our beginning, trunk - our growth and branch that long Partnership? I hope David, that when you attend your next council meeting, you will pass on our recognition and appreciation of that support to your colleagues."
