As reported in the Sidmouth Herald (15th November), a Lime tree to mark the arrival of the Queen’s great-grandson, Prince George, has been planted at the Knowle. The planting of the tree (donated by Sidmouth Garden Centre) was supervised by Diana East, who is Chair of the Sidmouth Arboretum. Local Town Councillors and Members of Knowle Residents’ Association were on hand,to show their appreciation of this example of care and protection of the parks and gardens.
Diana is already busy in her new additional role as Sidmouth Town Council’s first Tree Warden. The message below from Jeremy Woodward (of Vision Group for Sidmouth) gives details, and some links which will be of interest to those interested in the future of the Sid Valley:
Many of you will already have received the latest from the Sidmouth Arboretum – particularly the ambitious project of putting together a Tree Survey in 2014. This will involve local schools – and will need adult supervision.
Diana East is putting together a training session for the Tree Survey on the afternoon of Thursday 28th November: if interested, please contact her on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01395 519275
