Goodbye to the Grand Old Oak

We said goodbye to the grand old oak which had grown tall over many years at the HTC. It’s likely this tree was there at the cemeteries inception and could tell many stories. Rot in the crotch of the tree, risk of it falling, and the damage this would cause led to the decision to have it removed. Good by old friend. We will miss you. Have a look at photos of the event.
