Retiring Councillors plant tree in Windsor Gardens

Three recently retired R&M Community Councillors have planted a Liquidambar tree in Windsor Gardens. This is to recognise their service over a number of years. According to the RHS “Liquidambar are deciduous trees grown for their alternate, maple-like leaves which take on brilliant and long-lasting autumn colour”.

Councillor Helen Lloyd Jones writes:

It’s always difficult to find a good way to publicly express one’s thanks to retiring community councillors. But when, the management plan for Windsor Gardens recommended planting an ornamental tree, fellow councillors felt it would be good to ask the recently retired community councillors to plant a Liquidamber tree in Windsor Gardens. Hopefully it will grow into a stunningly beautiful tree that we can all enjoy.
