On Friday, members were treated to a buffet and club president John Bucknell also gave a speech welcoming everyone and explaining the importance of the initiative.

Officiating the tree planting ceremony, Mrs May then gave a speech and helped with the finishing touches of the planting.

Seema Goyal of Goyals in Maidenhead was also in attendance, as well as Royal Borough mayor Cllr John Story and mayoress Barbara Story.

Around 100 people were in attendance on the day.
