Arbor Day

Arbor Day Information

Each year, at the famous black poplar Arbor Tree, the village celebrates Arbor Day, with a Children's Pageant remembering the 1786 wedding of a local squire.

The pageant leaves the Village Hall at approx. 1:30pm and arrives at the tree at 1:45pm for the Wedding Ceremony.

Proceedings start at the tree at 1pm with singing, dancing and music and includes the Arbor Day song and poetry.

The procession then returns to the Village Hall and Green for refreshments, entertainments for the children, displays and activities which includes the history of the tree and local history. Stalls are available for £10 if booked in advance.
