A tree marking 75 years of the women’s section of the Royal British Legion in St Ives has been planted in Warner’s Park.

The silver birch was put in place on Tuesday as a replacement for the original damaged by vandals in August which had to be removed.

Members gathered in the park to watch as the tree was installed and were joined by St Ives Town Council staff and councillors.

The new tree was paid for by the town council and its ground maintenance team oversaw the planting. Pictured, front, is St Ives town groundsman Peter Wootton.
