Just take a moment to pause and notice the season turning on the cherry tree (?) by the bus shelter and also to remember Oliver Hawkins 1889-1975. This gorgeous tree was planted by his family.

Oliver wrote the introduction for the very first Parish News in August 1971; he died in 1975 and the tree was planted in 1976 (Wiltshire Cuttings/Wiltshire Museum archive & library)
