Unanimous Support for ‘Sprucing’ Up Malton’s Market Place.

Malton

4:48pm 7th February 2014

 

Malton’s town centre will be ‘spruced’ up, thanks to four new evergreen trees being placed in the town.

 

Malton Town Council unanimously approved plans to purchase and plant four Portuguese Laurels in Malton’s town centre back in October. The evergreens will be in place by Wednesday 12th February in four locations: outside Malton Relish; outside Scholefield’s clothing shop; outside the New Malton pub and outside the former Town Hall premises.

 

A four-way partnership has funded the project, with financial backing from Malton Town Council, Malton Community Interest Company, Malton and Norton Rotary Club, and an anonymous donor.

 

Mike Skehan, Malton Town Council’s Clerk, said: “Special thanks should go to the late Jason Fitzgerald-Smith, who took this proposal to the Town Council and was unrelenting in his support for it. It is a great shame that he is not around to see the results of his efforts.”

 

Malton’s Mayor, Cllr Joan Lawrence, said: “On behalf of Malton Town Council, I would like to express our gratitude to all who have been involved in and funded this latest project.”

 

Paul Prichard, President of Malton and Norton Rotary Club, said: “The Club is always keen to put something back into the towns, and it was very keen to be part of this group project to add further to the attractions of our Market Place. We look forward to seeing the trees in place.”

 

On hearing the news that Malton Town Council wholeheartedly approved of the project, Roddy Bushell, Estate Manager of the Fitzwilliam Malton Estate, said: “When we tentatively suggested this way of enhancing Malton’s Market Place to reflect its growing use as place where community and social events take place, we were delighted that Malton Town Council immediately saw the potential and has made it happen in short order.”

 

While using existing planters in the market place, the new trees will involve use of a mixed soil along with an invisible ‘anchor’ for each plant. Portuguese Laurel (sometimes referred to as Portugal Laurel) grows to between three and four metres in height, and is part of the cherry family. Native to southern Europe, the Latin name for the plant is Prunus lusitanica. Lusitanica is the Latin term for the country of Portugal. The spread of the branches will be clipped to around 1.5 metres.

 

Portuguese Laurel also has a clear trunk, so as well as having the tree ‘in situ’ the four planters will also include seasonal foliage, making great use of the space. The trees will be maintained in order to keep their shape and size.
