As part of the Environment & Sustainability objectives in our Growth & Ambition Plan, we’re committing to planting 500 trees over the next 10 years working with partners and housing developers.

The Town Council are purchasing 50 trees this year which we want to dedicate to residents that are married or enter into a civil partnership at our registry office on Milton Road South, all in the name of love and new beginnings. Not only to do trees clean the air, combat climate change & cool our streets. They grow stronger, and their roots grow deeper every year, representing the bond of long term commitment our residents have made to each other.

At the end of the year we will host a temporary exhibition of our newlyweds love stories.

For more information on claiming one of the 50 free trees provided by the Town Council, and being part of the exhibition contact Sarah-Jayne at sarah-jaynet@stowmarket.org or 01449 612060
