Churchyard Trees

You may not be aware of the fact that the churchyard and boundary wall around St Mary & All Saints Church is the responsibility of South Cambridgeshire District Council (SCDC). As part of their care and maintenance of the church yard the trees were inspected by their tree officer and the cherry plum trees along the south boundary and an apple on west side of the churchyard were deemed unsafe having reached the end of their natural lifespan.

SCDC instructed its contractor Acacia, to undertake removal of the trees during October 2012. They offered to supply replacement trees under their Parish Planting scheme, but having appreciated the much more open view of the church after the removal of the trees, the PCC decided to replace just 2 trees at the eastern end of the frontage. This was done last year, and after a slightly shaky start caused by lack of water, the 2 trees are now established, and we await the new foliage in the spring.
