Tree memorial at Cherhill View to Commemorate World War One
Three oak trees at the Redrow Homes Cherhill View development in Calne are being dedicated to mark the peace that followed the end of World War One during a ceremony on Saturday 8 December at 6:30pm.
The memorial, which is part of a wider project developed by Calne Area Parish Forum and Calne Area Board, aims to celebrate the start of peace by providing a place for reflection to remember those from the community that lost their lives during the War.
The trees, which will join many others as part of the Community Area Copse project, will eventually be linked through a series of footpaths to form a peace trail.
As part of our commitment to the communities in which we build houses, we have made a donation towards the supply of crocus bulbs which will be planted around the trees during the dedication event. This will be carried out alongside community carol singing organised by Tom Campbell, a local resident.
Sabrina Dawson, area sales manager for Redrow South West, said: “We feel very privileged that our trees on the Cherhill View development have been chosen to mark such an important part of our history.
“This year we have been involved in many ceremonies commemorating Armistice Day and this is just another great example of the community coming together as one.
“We are very much looking forward to seeing the peace trail once it has been finalised next year.”
The Cherhill View development, which is currently selling its final phase called Stockley Grange, consists of three and four-bedroom houses which look out onto meadows and the neighbouring North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The site, which boasts a large public open space and an area designated for an equipped children’s play area, is just a three-minute drive away from Calne town centre where potential home-buyers will find all of the amenities they need.
