WWI Memorial Tree Planting

An excellent afternoon was had on Sunday 26 October with the WW1 Memorial Tree Planting working party.

The working party was formed as part of the Chinnor and Henton WW1 Memorial project organised by Geoffrey Bamford and Lynn Lloyd to commemorate those who are listed on the Chinnor and Henton War Memorials who gave their lives 1914-1918.
The 14 volunteers split into 3 groups and headed off to plant:
  • 3 Limes at the Hill Road Recreation Ground
  • 1 Oak at White’s Field
  • 2 Whitebeams in Keens Lane
  • 2 Beech at Old Kiln Lakes
  • 1 Oak in Henton
As part of this project, trees were also planted at Mill Lane School and St Andrews School and in Estover Way Nature Reserve by Tiddlypeeps.

Next year a Lime tree will be planted in St Andrew's playing field.
A plaque with the location of all the trees is situated on the wall at the War Memorial.
