Jubilee Tree Planting 02

Some hardy members of Haddenham Parish Council braved the cold wintery weather on Monday 11th March to witness the formal planting of an oak sapling in Banks Park, in celebration of the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.

The official planting was performed by David Rankin, the long-serving and very recently retired Tree Warden for the village. Dave's role in supporting local tree care and encouraging additional planting over the last decade was once again formally acknowledged, with grateful thanks expressed by all those present.

Accompanying Dave were Margaret Aston, Chairman of Haddenham Parish Council, together with Councillors Steve Sharp, John Wheeler, and Chris Young. Also in support were Gill Dudley, Clerk of the Parish Council, and 'Village Handyman' Jim Ayres.
