ANGLIA Co-operative Funerals are helping to ensure a ‘green’ legacy. For every funeral conducted by their branches across East Anglia they will arrange for a tree to be planted in a local managed woodland.
The initiative is called Forever Green. Area manager Graham Wallace, responsible for the branch at Wisbech, plus George James and Son at March and J H Landin and Son at Chatteris, explained: “We have launched it as part of our corporate and social responsibilities.
“It will ensure that future generations of tree stocks are replenished. Next of kin will be given details of the local managed woodland where the tree will be planted and they will be able to visit the woodland. The trees will be planted during each planting season, which runs from November until the following March.”
