A new Red Oak tree was planted today in the churchyard. The Quercus Rubra will ultimately grow to 12 metres tall and will be a spectacular addition to the churchyard. It was bought to replace an Ash tree which was diseased and had to be felled. The Red Oak leaves go a deep red in autumn and should stand out most beautifully.
The tree was kindly donated to St Mary Magdalene by Hazel Steven and she supervised the planting with Clive Hunt doing much of the digging on behalf of the PCC!
