ENVIRONMENTALISTS organised a tree planting ceremony as part of plans to redesign a recreational space in Snitterfield.
Snitterfield Tree Action Group planted a semi-mature oak tree along the boundary of Snitterfield Playing Field.
The tree planting ceremony involved Lady Willoughby de Broke , High Sheriff of Warwickshire, as well as Snitterfield’s oldest resident who turns 100 this summer.
A plaque has also been put in place to mark the occasion.
The organisation is working alongside local authorities to improve the playing field, including more tree planting, plans for a community pavilion to replace a derelict youth hut, and the replacement of ageing playground equipment.
Part-funding has been secured from Warwickshire county councillor Penny-Anne O’Donnell and Snitterfield Village Community Projects for a community workshop to design a natural play area and equipment.
