Cobham

As part of Waitrose's commemoration of 75 years in the Partnership, Cobham has donated 22 English Oaks which have been planted to create an 'avenue' in the local community.

At the start of the year Waitrose Cobham joined forces with Elmbridge  Borough Council and  Cobham Conservation and Heritage  Trust in one of the largest joint community projects in recent years.  The Council have been very generous in agreeing to maintain the trees through the first year, while the Trust was fantastic in helping to find the perfect location and type of tree.

Despite the cold weather in February, more than 35 people turned out to help plant the trees.
