4:00pm Thursday 8th November 2012 in News
A TREE warden’s retirement will be marked at tree planting ceremony.
Stephanie Tyrer, a former Harwich councillor and mayor, retired as a tree warden in August due to ill health.
A poplar tree, replacing a similar tree lost in the 1987 storm, will be planted in a ceremony opposite Dovercourt Boating Lake tomorrow at 10am.
Kate Mayhew, assistant clerk to Harwich Town Council, said:”Stephanie pushed for a replacement tree for the one that was lost in the great storm.
“It is a way to thank for her everything she has done. She’s such a lovely lady.”
