Tree Planting to commemorate WW1

Tree planting to commemorate WW1 at Trefusis Park, Redruth


Saturday 5th April saw a group of Redruth Rotarians helped by members of 77 (Redruth) Squadron ATC struggle in damp and windy conditions plant 30 saplings at Trefusis Park, Redruth.

 

In August this year it will be 100 years since the outbreak of WW1 during which a total number of military and civilian casualties totalled 37 million of which 17million were killed. This total included 7 million civilians and 10 million military.

 

The trees that were supplied free by the Woodland Trust included Rowan, Silver Birch and Wild Cherry will eventually form a small copse giving year round colour to commemorate all those that were involved in the war.

Later in the year on the 27th July a commemoration service will be held at the park to which all members of the public are invited to attend.

The Cormac staff from Cornwall Council who help to maintain the parks are to be thanked for all their help over the last year to enable this community scheme to be fulfilled.
