Armistice Tree faces first winter



Many villagers were present at the dedication ceremony for Chadlington’s memorial tree last November. It was planted by the Parish Council to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

The tree is a Rowan or Mountain Ash (see more information here) which will lose its leaves and in years to come should produce orange berries in the Autumn.

As this picture shows the initially insignificant twig has blossomed into a small, healthy looking sapling with a number of good sized leaves. A picture taken on Apple Day shows how well it is growing.
