Trees will be planted in Marlow’s Seymour Park Recreation Ground this weekend after the initial tree planting ceremony was postponed.

Fronted by the town council, six trees were due to be planted on the popular green space on Sunday, February 16, but due to Storm Dennis, the event was called off.

It has now been rescheduled for Sunday, February 23.

The trees are being planted after the original trees were damaged by travellers a few months ago.

Jocelyn Towns, who is the leader of the town council, told the Free Press: “We were going to plant six trees after the others were damaged when the travellers were in the area.

“I’m not worried that the travellers will come back because we’ve got a lot of security in certain areas of the park.

“And it was a real shame when the trees got damaged but there was nothing we could do to protect them after the travellers got in there.

“We also need to remember that these are not big, stable, trees as they were only planted a few years ago - they need a few years to grow.

“And fingers crossed and weather permitting, we’ll be able to plant the trees this weekend.

“It wouldn’t have been fair on any of us to plant the trees during the storm!”

We have contacted Marlow Town Council to see what time the tree planting will start on Sunday.
