Tree commemorates First World War centenary in Mexborough

BOROUGH councillor Bev Chapman said she was honoured to help Army cadets plant a tree commemorating the centenary of the First World War.

The new tree at Castle Hills Park in Mexborough was officially planted on Saturday by the Civic Mayor of Doncaster and Mayoress, Cllr David Nevett and Mrs Kathleen Nevett alongside cadets from South Yorkshire’s C Company and Mexborough First’s Cllr Chapman. 

Cllr Bev Chapman said “It was a absolute honour to help plant a tulip tree in Castle Hills to mark the centenary of the First World War.

“The tree was kindly donated by Doncaster Civic Trust as part of National Tree Week. “Thanks to the Civic Mayor, his wife and the Army Cadets for being a part of the ceremony.”

The tulip tree — said to be especially popular with bees — is expected to flower in June.
