Tree Planting – DELAYED

Our Society will be planting a tree as part of The Queen’s Green Canopy and in memory of her late Majesty. Currently we are waiting for the council to have a tree in stock.

This will take place on the green at the junction of Bitterne Road East and Maybray King Way, next to the underpass.
