The grounds of Knott End library are being given a makeover as part of the celebrations for the Queen’s diamond jubilee.

Wyre Council offered Preesall Council a choice of young trees to mark the jubilee, prompting Preesal to chose a jubilee oak.

The tree was planted at the library recently by town mayor Coun Chris Lamb along with members of Wyre’s grounds maintenance team.

Town clerk Jan Finch said: “The town council is planning a series of improvements to the land behind the library and the planting of this tree was the first of them.

“We will shortly be planting six bird cherry trees along the rear perimeter of the land and this is likely to be in December.

“The town council is paying for five of them and one has been sponsored by Kepplegate Care Services of Sandy Lane, Preesall.”

* Catterall parish council has been successful in being given 105 saplings in honour of the Diamond Jubilee.

They are due to arrive in the village this week.

The council’s environment Committee has been asked to organise the planting of the trees.

* Forton parish council, which has also been offered a tree, has agreed to site its tree from Wyre in the play area off Winder Lane.

The council has asked that guards are used at the tree to ensure it is not damaged by rabbits.
