Jubilee Tree planting

A small team from St Mary Magdalene Church gathered  in the church yard on Sunday around the tree which was planted early in February to mark the  70th anniversary of Her Majesty The Queen’s accession to the throne. The tree, a handkerchief tree (Davidii involucrata), has recently come into leaf and eager small hands helped to build a layer of mulch around the base of the tree to fertilise the roots and conserve moisture in the summer months.
