Oak tree planted for retired Town Clerk
Bevirs Law planted an Oak tree on Marlowe Way on Tuesday 27th April 2021, to mark the 30+ years of service given to the town by retired Town Clerk, Johnathan Bourne.
Mr Bourne who retired in July 2020 from his long-standing role had his service recognised with the planting of the Oak tree as a gift, for which all costs were covered by Bevirs Law in Royal Wootton Bassett and a commemorative plaque kindly donated by ASF Signs.
The socially distanced ceremony was attended by Johnathan and Deborah Bourne, Sonyia Woolnough, Partner at Bevirs Law, the Mayor Nic Hughes and Mayoress, Sue Hughes, Grant Larking from ASF signs, Michelle Temple, Administrative Services Manager and members of the Town Council Grounds Team who helped plant the tree.
Sonyia Woolnough Partner at Bevirs Law said:
“I have been very privileged to work with Johnathan for many years and thought that an oak tree would be a fitting way to celebrate his many years of calm professionalism and public service. I am grateful and pleased that the Town Council gave permission for the oak tree to be planted.”
