Mother’s Day & Trees for Mum

Sunday is Mother’s Day and, I’d like to wish all the mothers of Our City all the happiness for a great day.

If it’s Mother’s Day then it’s also Trees for Mum day – and it’s on the same day, May 13. Trees for Mum encourages sons and daughters of all ages to give a special remembrance for their mums by planting a tree on Mother’s Day. This year we’re doing it at Sir Joseph Banks Pleasure Gardens at the children’s playground off Fremlin Street between 10:00am and 12noon. Council staff will be on hand to help and we’ll supply all the trees and whatever else you might need. Trees for Mum is really a great thing as it gives an opportunity for families to have a growing tree as a statement for the life mothers give to their children. If you’d like to take part, come along down to Sir Joseph Banks Park on Mother’s Day to plant a tree for your mum – and why not stay longer and enjoy a family BBQ or a picnic lunch in a great family location.
