New Rotary Centenary Tree Honours Founder Member

Thanks to a very kind donation, the Rotary Club of Cranleigh has been able to replace the young London Plane tree that was irreparably damaged recently outside the Alliance Pharmacy in Cranleigh High Street. The donation was made in memory of Gordon Thomas, a founder member of the Cranleigh Club, who died in 2007 and who did so much for Cranleigh over the years.

The original tree, which was funded by the members of Cranleigh Rotary Club, was planted to mark the Centenary of Rotary International. Unfortunately, it was vandalised and broken in November 2007. Other Centenary projects included a commemorative plaque and a street map in Stocklund Square, and a school writing competition.
