FOLLOWING the successful planting of fruit trees near the Anglo American Memorial in February, a group of Walden in Transition volunteers planted six trees on the north side of the Common Car Park.

Organised by John Ready and with the support of Saffron Walden Town Council, the trees include two Beeches, two London Planes and two Norway Maples which will, in time, complete the existing partial screening of the car-park from the north.

For more information about Walden in Transition see the website at walden-in-transition.org.uk or call 01799 501456.

WiT welcomes your suggestions for other locations around the town that would benefit from tree planting in our programme for next autumn.
