Council to plant tree as memorial to WINZ staff


The Ashburton community, including media, is invited to a tree planting ceremony at 12.15pm, this Friday, in memory of Work and Income staff members Peggy Turuhira Noble and Susan Leigh Cleveland. The ceremony, hosted by the Ashburton District Council, marks the exact date and time of the memorial service held for Peggy and Leigh last year.

The tree, donated by the Tedbri Charity Fund, will be planted in the grass area inside the Ashburton Domain's wrought iron gates on the corner of West and Wills Street (near the duck feeding area).

Ashburton District Council will place a plaque under the tree at a later date.
