Fawler residents plant oak tree to mark Diamond Jubilee
3:40pm Friday 4th January 2013 in News
VILLAGERS in Fawler have planted an oak tree to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee last year.
The tree was planted last month to the east of the village, next to a new bench overlooking the Evenlode Valley.
About 30 residents were joined for the event by county councillor Neil Owen, who placed a ceremonial trowel of soil on the tree’s roots.
Donations from the community and a £375 West Oxfordshire District Council grant paid for the project, with work carried out over a number of weekends by residents.
The planting was supervised by tree expert Luke Tamblyn, who lives in Fawler.
