AN OLIVE tree has been installed in the High Street in Stamford.
The tree has been installed by Stamford Town Partnership’s urban group in a new large planter.
The tree joins two new benches and a litter bin, which were installed in December, as part of a £20,000 project. The disabled bays in front of Wilkinson were also repainted as part of the project.
Chairman of the urban group Don Lambert promised the tree would look “amazing by the summer”. He said the tree, which had come from Italy and been delivered by Barcham Trees, had recently lost its leaves and been pruned.
He said: “This has been a lengthy project and one which required the help and support of a lot of people.
“We would especially like to thank Marks and Spencer, South Kesteven District Council and the Skells Trust for their generous donations, and also those town councillors who gave us their backing.”
