Friday afternoon saw another tree being planted adding to Wimborne Minster’s growing Tree Trail; this time at the Victoria Road end of the entrance to Wimborne Cemetery.
The Magnolia brooklynensis “Elizabeth”, was planted by Councillor Nigel Bridle of Colehill, who is also Chair of the Cemetery Joint Management Committee. He was joined at the planting by Cllr Louise Hinks, Jane Stevenson (Cemetery Clerk), Craig Hilton (Groundsman), Mrs Alison Bridle, Cllr Ann Roberts and Cllr Bill Richmond.
The Wimborne Tree Trail is a part of the ‘Queen’s Canopy’ initiative; a project that is nationwide and designed to celebrate the Jubilee of our late Queen Elizabeth. This was the seventh of twelve trees – with more to be planted in the coming weeks. Details of the Tree Trail can be found by searching for “Wimborne Minster Tree Trail” on Google. The trail is a part of a website also covering a history trail around the town.
