On Saturday 9th October Grange Soroptimists , with mayor Tricia Thomas planted a tree and placed a plaque near the library to mark the Centenary of Soroptimist International. A Paul’s Crimson Hawthorn tree was chosen primarily because hawthorns are excellent if not the best species for carbon capture. Secondly it will provide all year round interest from the deep pink blossom in May and the red haws and yellow leaves in Autumn/ wintertime.
This was part of the Soroptimists involvement in tree planting to fight climate change #PlantTrees. See the SIGBI Website for information about other Clubs tree planting and SIGBI tree planting map
