Current Mayor plants tree on Hayling Island

In 1974 the Charter Mayor, John Derben, a Hayling Island councillor planted an Ash tree in Legion Field and started a tradition which has continued up to the present time.

Five years ago, because of  ash tree die back, it was decided that in future a variety of trees would be planted in Hayling park instead. 

A tree is usually planted toward the end of a mayor's term of office.
