We are thrilled to say that everything went alright on the night and the trees are safely installed in fabulous pots on Palmers Green high street. It took a village to make the project a success - your funding, together with the Mayor's grant, was vital and then the help and co-ordination from Thors Trees (who very kindly volunteered their time and expertise), oversight and additional funding from Enfield Council, Clockhouse Nursery for lovely plants with a discount, Urbis Design for the pots and spot on time delivery, Thompsons of Crews Hill for great compost, slate and mulch (and more bags at the last minute), Barcham Trees for two beautiful Pyrus Chanticleer, our very kind local resident who donated two olive trees, our volunteers who turned up to plant and My Time and Vaporium for refreshments to keep us going. So many people stopped to appreciate the trees as we were planting them - it was a great experience. One of the most lovely conversations we had was with an elderly man who, while thanking everyone, explained he came to the UK from Cyprus when he was eleven, that olive trees are very important in Cyprus and signify peace - we agreed the world could do with a lot more peace right now. Thank you again for your donation to the project - we hope you enjoy the results!
