Tree for Remembrance

On Tuesday January 21st 2014 a rowan tree was planted by the friends and family of Ruth Hartwell, (nee Edgcumbe), who died in October 2013.

The foggy, damp weather gave way to a few shafts of sunshine, just as everyone arrived for the ceremony.

The tree is sited on the newly cleared area near the archway entrance and once established the berries will be another source of food for birds.

Ruth lived in Binstead as a child and would have known the Play Lane area well.

After the planting, some poems were read and then all those present tied labels with proverbs and sayings to the tree.



We need YOU!

As Play Lane Millennium Green is open for everyone to enjoy, we must have Public Liability Insurance. We also have to carry out regular management of bramble and scrub clearing as well as thinning of the oak trees to encourage optimum growth. Amongst all that, we have to carry out maintenance work on footpaths.

£500 minimum is needed each year to maintain the green to its best standard, for everyone to enjoy.

This is where you come in, follow the link below to find out how you can support the Green.
