We have seen some devastating effects to the trees in our village following the recent storms and some of our villagers have shared their sadness about the trees that have been lost in the Welfare Field, Chare Bank, and the Memorial Park.

Trees play a big part in our environment, from our well-being to supporting our commitment to climate change, so we will be replanting and replacing the trees we have lost, but also planting more! We have received requests for a memorial tree both to mark the pandemic and as part of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and have seen some great examples of trees being used as memorials in other villages, so we are bringing all of your requests and ideas together for our ‘Tree Planting Scheme’.

Many thanks to everyone who sponsored a tree - all trees have now been sponsored with the option of having a memorial plaque next to the tree. The new trees will be planted in the Memorial Park and in the Welfare Field. We are buying young trees rather than saplings to give them the best start.

There is no date for the planting yet - Autumn is the optimum time of year - but residents who have sponsored a tree will be notified directly to enable them to make suitable arrangements and the date will be published as soon as it is confirmed.
