BY chance, Yeoford School reflected how people had come together over the Queen’s Jubilee when cream teas were brought out to celebrate the planting of a tree for the Queen in the school grounds.

The PTA had provided about 100 home-made scones for the teas, some made the Devon way with jam on top, some the Cornish way with cream on top, all went down the same way.  Big baskets of strawberries were also served, donated by Thorne’s Farm Shop near Cheriton Fitzpaine.

The tree, a Malus Marble which will have bright red glossy, almost translucent fruit, was a gift from Crediton Hamlets Parish Council.

Cllr Nick Yarnold dug the hole and planted the tree watched by the whole school.  The oak backing for the plaque was made by a local man.
