Friends of the Carrs planted an oak tree in the town park in the beautiful sunshine on Tuesday, 26th January, as part of the celebrations to mark Manchester Airport's 80th anniversary.
In late summer last year, communities across the region were given the chance to apply for a commemorative oak tree and time capsule as part of Manchester Airport's 80th birthday celebrations.
Friends of The Carrs applied and were very fortunate to receive their tree just before Christmas. Unfortunately they didn't receive a time capsule as apparently they had run out.
An FOTC spokesperson said "We were delighted to plant this 80th anniversary tree from Manchester Airport. The tree adds to those donated by other organisations and individuals and will help to ensure the continuance of the wooded aspects of The Carrs well into the future and for the benefit of future generations."
The oak tree is located just over the first bridge on what used to be the old pitch and putt course. Friends of The Carrs are hoping to add a commemorative plaque at some point in the near future.
