Calverton Heritage Garden has received a new addition in the form of a beautiful cherry tree following a kind donation to Calverton Parish Council.

The planting of the cherry tree by Calverton Parish Council in the Heritage Garden near the Working Men’s Club on Collyer Road has been made to memorialise all those lives from Calverton Village that have been lost over the years.

Cllr. Brown from Calverton Parish Council said: “There are plans for a small plaque to be put in front of the tree and the Parish Council encourages residents to leave a single flower to commemorate a loved one’s passing at the base of the tree.

“The Parish Council respectfully request that nothing is hung from the tree as it is still relatively young and this could damage the tree.”

The Parish Council said they are still hoping to ‘find’ a farming implement that would complement the coal truck in the park and reflect the village’s farming heritage. This has proven difficult to date, however, they are not giving up.

“If you have a spare old ‘plough’ or farming implement that you or someone you know would be willing to donate to the Heritage Garden then Calverton Parish Council would love to hear from you,” they said.

Calverton Parish Council can be contacted online at www.calvertonpc.org.uk or by email to parishclerk@calvertonpc.org.uk
