Ingoldisthorpe youngsters plant trees as 'living memorial' to fallen heroes

By Lynn News Reporter

A group of children from Ingoldisthorpe Primary School began planting apple and pear trees funded by the Orchard Windfall Fund to celebrate National Tree Week.

Some 12 trees have been sourced from the East of England Apples and Orchards project and the final tree, donated by Andrew Jamieson of Drove Orchards, will be planted at the Christmas light switch-on in the village tomorrow.

The trees, which are all heritage Norfolk varieties, carry a special significance as they are planted as a living memorial to men from Ingoldisthorpe who lost their lives during the World Wars.

A plaque will be displayed at the bottom of each tree engraved with the names of those who died. Picture: SUBMITTED.
