“80 Trees for 80 Years”

This morning some 35 people gathered at Salter’s Field near the Cricket Club to witness the planting of an oak by Dr Peter Brent, in memory of his parents who came as refugees to England from Nazi Germany in 1939.  The tree planting was part of a national project  “80 Trees for 80 Years” by the Association of Jewish Refugees. The event was attended by the Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, Robert Voss, the Mayor of Hertsmere, Ann Swerling, faith leaders, members of the Council and community leaders.
