On 5 November Saltford Parish CouncilSaltford Community Association and Curo planted two oak trees in Saltford to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. 

It had been hoped to plant the trees on the anniversary day itself, but this was prevented by the COVID-19 lockdown. When the trees are sufficiently large a commemorative plaque will be mounted on one of them; until then the plaque will be displayed in Saltford Hall.

The trees were kindly supplied by Curo contractor Ambience Landscapes who Saltford Parish Council also contract to after St Mary’s Churchyard.

 

 

Curo Senior Arboriculturalist Joe Robson said: “Thank you to Saltford Parish Council and Saltford Community Association for helping to organise the planting of these two commemorative oak trees. And a big thank you to Ambience Landscapes of Frampton Cotterell for not only supplying these trees free of charge but planting them too!

"These trees are to commemorate VE Day and will become part of Remembrance Day in years to come. Curo are very proud to work with such proactive and community-minded organisations.”
