- Luke celebrates the 400th year anniversary of the Mayflower’s voyage
- Luke plants the special Mayflower 400 apple trees
- Luke praises the Friends of Devonport Park for their fantastic work over the past decade
Luke, alongside Councillor Bill Stevens and the Friends of Devonport Park, gathered on Saturday to celebrate the 400th year anniversary of the Mayflower’s expedition.
Despite recent weather, the Friends of Devonport Park have been planting fruit trees and maintaining the park for this ceremony. The event marks the creation of the fruiting arboretum in Devonport Park. The Mayflower 400 apple trees have taken over 35 years to perfect.
“It has been a fantastic effort from a group of volunteers who have spent so much time over the past decade looking after, investing, nurturing, planting, pruning, and generally making Devonport Park such a jewel in the crown of Plymouth’s green spaces.”
