A tree has been planted in a Moorlands town’s main park in recognition of two special events.
A special plaque for The VE Day and Queens Platinum Jubilee Tree in Tean Road Recreation Grounds, was unveiled on Thursday (June 2).
Cheadle Town Council organised the green-fingered initiative.
Town Clerk Dave Mullington said: “A Sweet Chestnut Tree has been planted on the Tean Road Recreation Ground to commemorate VE Day and The Queens Platinum Jubilee.
“Former Mayor, councillor Ian Plant, and the incumbent Mayor, councillor Sue Walley, unveiled a commemorative plaque marking the occasion, which saw representatives of Cheadle Town Council and the Royal British Legion join together for a short ceremony.’
Dave added: “Many thanks to Jim Plant who provided the tree, along with the wonderful tree guard he made from materials supplied by local business IAE.
“The plaque itself was engraved in commemoration of the events, and was accompanied by a beautiful ornate Dove symbolising Peace, Love, Purity, Gentleness and Hope.”
