The Chairman of South Northants Council, Councillor Sally Townsend was the special guest at Richmond Northampton
She was delighted to except the honour of being part of the planting ceremony to mark the occasion. Village resident Hilda Bower was also in attendance and helped Sally with the first spade of soil.
Sally then spoke to all in attendance and thanked Richmond for inviting her to attend as she had played a vital role in the building of the Grange Park and Richmond Community. Afterwards Sally was given a guided tour around the village whilst speaking to residents along the way.
