Tree of the Year

16th November 2015
The results are in!
Our black poplar came 7th in the search for the nation's Tree of the Year!  
Mr John Davison, friend of school and the person responsible for nominating the tree, said,
I was very pleased with the result.  Considering it is so far north, and in a sparsely populated corner of the country, the tree did well even to reach the finals – and to get seventh was remarkable.  Thanks for all your help with the contest – it was greatly appreciated.  At least we can truthfully say that this “poplar” (having out-scored the Cumbrian tree) is the most “popular” tree in the whole of the north of England this year.
