Memorial trees planted in memory of the late Cllr Peter Boast

Tree_plantingChertsey Rotary Club in partnership with Runnymede Council planted 30 young trees in Bourne Meadow, Chertsey in memory of the late Cllr Peter Boast on Saturday 15 March 2014.

With the sun shining seven volunteers from the Chertsey Rotary Club came out to plant 10 sloe, 10 mountain ash and 10 wild cherry trees to create a copse to enhance the local community in Chertsey.

Runnymede Council’s Green Space team provided a planting plan, prepared the ground for the planting by rotovating the area, provided tree protection fences and will be providing bark mulch to be spread around the base of the trees.

Chertsey Meads Councillor Derek Cotty said: “This is a lovely addition to Chertsey in memory of an upstanding member of the Chertsey community. This will give a lasting legacy to the late Peter Boast for generations to enjoy and benefit from.”

A memorial plaque for Peter Boast will be officially unveiled in April.
