The formal planting of forty cherry trees was completed today by Jane Bennett the Managing Director of Bennetts Funeral Directors. She was accompanied by Basildon Borough Council Mayor Cllr Morris and Town Councillor Peter Bowditch.
Bennetts, founded in 1861, are celebrating their 125th year and feel very strongly about the community within which they operate. As a recognition of the 125 years they are planting 125 trees in Billericay & Brentwood. As well as this wonderful gift to Lake Meadows, more trees have been planted at Sun Corner.
You will see the trees along the paths by the southern
side of the lake, past the rhododendron garden and towards the Hillhouse
