Abbotsham Women's Institute have supported the 'Plant a tree in 73' campaign by planting five!
The president, Mrs Vanstone, planted a silver birch on the grass verge by the signpost in the village and in the churchyard, the Vicar, Rev R A Ford, accepted from her a blue cedar that she planted with the aid of Major Giles Lomas, churchwarden.
Later Mrs Worthington, Mrs Shekleton and Mrs Courtney, committee members, each planted a larch beside the lay-by near Rickards Down.
Operations were watched by a number of people.
The Vicar thanked the Institute on behalf of the Parish Council.
