Tree Planting in Memory of Brenda Willis

Tree Planting for Brenda Willis 2008

Ann Robbins

A fine specimen of our native oak tree Quercus robur was planted on The Croft at 12pm on Saturday 29th November 2008.

The tree was given by Scrooby Gardeners in memory of the club's first secretary Brenda Willis. Brenda died in February.

Frank Willis and their daughter Katherine attended the tree planting along with members of the gardening club and other villagers.

The 14 feet tree came from Green Mile Trees at Babworth, because it was grown locally it stands every chance of establishing quickly on The Croft and should become a landmark in our village in years to come.
