First World War Centenary tree planting ceremony, Saturday 17th November 2018

Marking the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1, Rotary in Knaresborough have arranged to plant 420 trees near Conyngham Hall and Horseshoe Field, about 250 yards up the public footpath from the timber bridge. The trees are native species provided by the Woodland Trust.

On Saturday 17th November tree planting will begin at 10am with a break for a short ‘Last Post’ Remembrance Ceremony at 11am. This will be followed at 11.15 by the ringing of half-muffled church bells, 248 changes, one for each Knaresborough man.


Andrew Jones MP, the Mayor of Harrogate, the Mayor of Knaresborough, The Royal British Legion and The Army Foundation College will be attending and

members of the public are also invited to attend.
