The Sherford community has cause to celebrate, with its first ever resident marking their fifth anniversary of moving to the new town as its founding member. A day of commemorative activities took place to celebrate the growing community, the groups that have formed and to mark its past, present and future.
A tree planting ceremony was held, with Councillor Dan Brown - Ward Councillor for Wembury and Brixton - officiating alongside South Hams District Council's Green Infrastructure Officer. Scots Pine trees were planted during the event in Sherford's Country Park; an area that will eventually span a colossal 500-acres of open green space.
The celebration was run by some of Sherford's active social groups, including the Community Church, Over 50s club and Friends of Sherford Country Park. The Friends group is RHS affiliated and includes 25 households from within the old and new parts of the community. It undertakes projects within the expansive public green space, enables members to mix and enjoy the outdoors and encourages everyone to work together for the common good.
The Friends of the Country Park group marked her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee year by planting a further seven trees - one for each decade on the throne - as part of the Queen's Green Canopy initiative which is running across the country to increase native tree cover as a 'special gift' for the Queen. These trees were funded by the Sherford Community Trust along with the community celebrations, refreshments and a plant sale which was held at the hub later in the day.
