Church of England Diocese of Chelmsford St. Nicholas, Elm Park, Hornchurch

Hardy Olive Tree

2 Aug 2021, 11 p.m.

The garden at the front of the church looks somewhat bare following the removal earlier this year of the two dead trees. It was planned that these would be replaced by something more appropriate. As we all know, the pandemic did not leave Elm Park unscathed and must have touched many families, some even losing members. It was suggested that, as a way of remembrance, an olive tree should be planted. The type suggested is a multi-trunk, which represents the coming together of church and community. We hope to raise sufficient funds to purchase this, and are looking for in excess of £800, which would include purchase, planting and, possibly, a plaque.
