The very community minded members of the Audlem Burial Committee took the decision to back a move to have trees planted here.
This is in answer -- in the first instance -- to commemorate the 2022 Platinum Anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 's 70 years as monarch. Plus the fact that the cemetery began 150 years ago .
Since announcing this event on AOL , we had many requests that each tree be in memory of a loved one . So much so that all 70 trees have been sponsored by members of our community.
The overall response has been to applaud the committee and that we will enjoy the two avenues of trees now planted and staked in the new paths at the lower part of the grounds .
I expect to see a grand show in about 5 years. Trees all chosen with birds and pollinators in mind.
I hope all will enjoy this lovely action.
