Dr Dan plants historic first oak tree at the Earl Soham Jubilee Wood project

Dr Dan plants the first commemorative oak tree at the Earl Soham Jubilee WoodDan welcomed the invitation to plant the first commemorative oak tree at the Earl Soham Jubilee Wood as part of celebrations to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The Earl Soham Jubilee Wood is a project that started last year after an opportunity arose for the community of Earl Soham to purchase a little over one acre of Glebe land which was being sold by the Diocese. Over £25,000 was raised by the local community, in conjunction with businesses and associations while Suffolk County Council has agreed to build a footpath through the proposed wood. The site lies between the two parts of the village and provides the opportunity for a traffic free pedestrian link, that may have been lost had the land been sold for development.

A management team is currently being set up to organise the clearing of the land and trees are due to be planted at the Earl Soham Jubilee Wood this autumn. Dan would like to commend the Trustees of the project, along with all of the residents and businesses that helped raise the funding to enable this community development to go ahead.
