To commemorate the Queen’s diamond jubilee we planted a catalpa aurea is the SE corner of the garden. The plaque at the base was dedicated at the summer party held on Thursday the 5th.
The tree seems to be a fine specimen and it has certainly brought some colour to an otherwise dark corner of the square.
This tree should complement the Princeton Elm planted last year in the opposite corner of the square and also the silver birches planted in Spring in the NE corner.
The audited final accounts are now available for the period ending March 31, 2012.
We are in an acceptable position financially due to the temporarily heightened level of the precept and the efforts of the committee to keep expenditure to a minimum for the past two years. Our aim is to have a reserve of approximately one year’s expenses on hand to deal with unforeseen expenses such as irrigation, emergency tree surgery or garden shed repairs.
